Inpatient Behavioral Health Armbands

Do you have inpatient behavioral health patients that are keeping their armbands for identification on their wrist? Please advise if you have a product that stays on, or what other processes you have implemented to continue safe patient identification for bedside barcoding and all other hospital processes for this patient population.
