Your Jefferson ID Badge

Photo ID Badges Policy (No 200.30)

Proper personal identification is an essential part of Jefferson’s security efforts and promotes effective communication with patients, employees, medical staff, students and vendors.  The Photo identification badge, by its nature should be a clear, concise device for identification.  Federal and State regulations have mandated that the Photo identification badge of anyone having direct patient care must also display the state-recognized licensure and the generic job title on the front of the badge.

All Jefferson personnel (employees, medical and house staff, students, volunteers, clergy and vendors) will display a Thomas Jefferson University / Thomas Jefferson University Hospital photo identification badge while on Jefferson property.

The Jefferson issued badge will be the sole form of identification.  Name tags or names stitched on lab coats will not be accepted as a substitute but may be worn in addition to the identification badge.  Identification badges should not be tampered with.  No stickers, pins or other foreign objects are to be attached.  No writing or other adjustments should be made.

The initial photo identification badge is free for Jefferson employees and Jefferson students; however, there is a $15.00 replacement cost for lost or damaged badges.
