Centralized on each patient floor is a sterile supply room that contains medications and materials. Supplies are traditionally stored in these rooms on wire shelving and carts, but supplies can be more efficiently stored and organized using Spacesaver storage products like high-density mobile storage or the FrameWRX Storage System.
At the Atrium Medical Center, the materials management director wanted to improve storage density and speed up materials management practices. They set out to:
The new central sterile supply storage system enabled fast, easy access to supplies throughout the new medical center. This was accomplished by color coding and compacting central supply storage areas with the FrameWRX Storage System. The facility was able to streamline operations without having to add full-time staff or increase inventory costs, increase supplies on patient floors from 7,298 to 11,896, and minimize the time nurses spend searching for supplies – providing greater opportunity for patient care.
