Add a "Technician" line to the patient banner, so easy to see which tech has the patient

Add a "Technician" line to the patient banner, so it's easy to tell who the primary tech for a patient is. Ideally it would show up under the "DVM:" line. Knowing which tech to track down if I have to check on a treatment performed, explain an order, etc, would be a huge help, especially for bigger hospitals with multiple techs and hospitalized patients.

    My hospital currently uses the "cage number" box for this. We add our initials into that box and it appears on the patients picture on the smartflow board. This has been a game changer for us as we are a busy ER and our Drs could never remember which tech was with each patient. Now they can just check the board and it is in red.

    It is easily fixed by adding "whiteboards" with nurse names, so they are able to put the patient under their name. Additionally, writing the nurse name in the "custom" part of patient info can also be helpful for identifying the nurse- by choosing what info you want to show up at a glance, you can edit it to add the custom part.

    You can put under Custom: technician name. How you do it edited patient, under general info is where custom.
