comment Why is it impossible to produce truly random numbers?
@DavidZaslavsky, Einstein was disturbed enough by the unpredictability/randomness of quantum mechanics to say "God does not play dice with the universe" on more than one occasion.

comment Patient Record Tracking System
If you really want to stick with barcodes, have one scanner (cost about $100) in the file room. Put a sheet of barcodes (Dr House, Nurse Ratched, etc) on the wall (so one doesn't need barcodes on badges) and scan name + any number of files. Don't let the folks refile their own files, toss them into a tray and one (or 2) designated refilers check them back in. File not on the shelf? Look in refile tray, not there? Ask computer in filing room. Might be a few kinks to work out, but that ought to be a start.
