Medical Supply Storage for You
MEDICAL SUPPLY ROOM STORAGE
Although it may be tempting to cut costs by skimping on medical supply storage space in healthcare facilities, this can actually end up costing more in the long run. Not only does storage space play an important role in patient care, but it is also expensive to design, build, and maintain. Every cubic foot of storage space is another expense for the facility, so it’s important to use that space wisely.
Hospitals and other healthcare facilities play a vital role in helping people heal. To do this effectively, they need to have a wide range of supplies on hand, from slings and syringes to surgical instruments. This means that storage space is crucial – without it, staff members waste valuable time walking to distant storage areas, searching for supplies, and managing inventory issues.
Store More in Less Space
If you’re looking for a way to make the most of your space and eliminate wasted aisle space, consider investing in Spacesaver’s High-Density Mobile Storage system. This system is especially beneficial in healthcare settings, where every cubic inch counts. Hospital pharmacies are undergoing major renovations to comply with strict new regulations governing the storage and handling of hazardous chemicals. In this particular case, the hospital had to install clean rooms within the existing footprint of the pharmacy. By compacting their storage, they were able to make the most of the limited space they had left.
Improve the Patient Care Experience
In order to keep up with the demand for testing, this diagnostic lab needed to rapidly increase its capacity. To do so, they ordered three Spacesaver high-density mobile storage systems: one for materials management and two for storing test kits in refrigerated rooms. This allowed them to turn around tests faster and provide results more quickly to patients.
IMPROVE WORKFLOWS / STAFF EXPERIENCE
In the university hospital’s food service storage area, our Spacesaver systems provide ample space for all of your stored items while still meeting all health and safety requirements. The antibacterial-coated wire shelving is mounted on a powered mobile system that’s also equipped with ZFS safety features, making it easy and convenient for you to access everything you need while also discouraging the growth of bacteria and other pathogens.
This hospital was leasing an electronic supply management system to store and dispense supplies. The materials manager worked with Spacesaver’s engineering team to create 4-Post shelving cabinets that fit in the allotted space, permitted visibility, and secured with locks. The installation of these cabinets has resulted in an annual savings of $38,000 for the hospital.
High-density storage system optimizes space and increases capacity at a cancer treatment center.
When a cancer treatment center expanded, better medical supply room storage was at the top of the staff’s wish list.
The goal of the expansion was to add chemotherapy infusion areas and new exam rooms, allowing more patients to be treated at the facility. Improving medical supply room storage was also a top priority, as the original facility lacked adequate storage space for supplies. As a result, staff had been struggling with inadequate storage for more than ten years.
The planning team knew that treating more patients would require even more medical supplies like tubing, bags, and gauze. They also knew that storage for these items can take up a lot of space.
The Spacesaver system is designed to optimize storage space in medical supply rooms, keeping supplies organized and accessible. This can free up space for infusion rooms and other patient care areas, and save staff time by having all the chemotherapy supplies in one place.
The planning team had seen Spacesaver systems in other hospital supply rooms and decided to call on their local Spacesaver consultant for help. The consultant suggested designing a long, narrow medical supply room with a Spacesaver high-density mobile system fitted with 4-post shelving and wire decking. The room is secured with a keypad lock to prevent unauthorized access to the medical supply room.
The Spacesaver system provides efficient storage for gowns, coveralls, chemotherapy spill kits, chemo prep mats, chemobloc bags, and transport bags – just to name a few. With this system in place, you’ll have plenty of space to store all of your medical supplies – both for the existing facility and the new addition.
