English term or phrase: name tag
What are name tags called in hospitals or clinics?
Sorry I wasn't specific enough. I mean the name tags worn by hospital employees.
Thanks again

Explanation:
Name tags of any type are gafetes; to add the word identificación would be redundant since the word implies that the user's name is printed, typed or written there.

I already graded this question once, but Yahoo! or somebody keeps asking me to do it again, so
this time you get the Kudoz. The one I originally graded doesn't appear in the group I just got (for the third time).
Is it I...?
Thanks to all.

Etiqueta de nombre


Explanation:
En realidad, concuerdo con "tarjeta de identificación" pero muchas veces la tarjeta se refiere a aquella que está hecha de cartulina y que sirve para registrar la presencia. La etiqueta de nombre sería aquella que llevan pegada o sujeta con broche en el delantal o uniforme. Pero, como siempre, depende del país donde se use. Tanto etiqueta de nombre como tarjeta de identificación son neutros.
Suerte
