We keep a set of muzzles in each exam room and treatment area of the hospital. We used to mark the muzzles with permanent marker to indicate where they belonged, but eventually it wears off. We came up with the idea to sew a button on the end of the nylon strap—red for the ER cart, blue for one exam room, green for another, and so on. It's a quick solution and makes it so much easier to identify where the muzzles belong.
