Tip:  Do you have healthcare practitioners on staff or visiting your facility? Healthcare practitioners are physicians, RNs, LVNs, etc. If so, the California Business & Professions Code requires that each practitioner wears a name tag with his or her name and practitioner’s license status in at least 18-point type while in your facility. For example, a name tag might read: 

Mary Smith

Registered Nurse 

Reference: California Business & Professions Code 680
