Healthcare & Hospital Solutions

The people who work in the healthcare industry are concerned with saving lives and alleviating people’s suffering—solving furniture & storage challenges is at the bottom of their list of priorities. However, despite this, these same individuals encounter serious space constraints and organization issues that stop them from getting on with their jobs on a daily basis.

Many contemporary medical facilities struggle to keep up with the furniture & storage challenges that emerge alongside the increased availability of treatments, equipment, documentation requirements, and supplies. That’s where we come in. Through our extensive experience of solving furniture & storage problems for medical facilities we have perfected the art of developing innovative systems that meet the evolving needs of contemporary medical practices.

Healthcare Furniture

Let’s break it down to the basics.

We all know that healthcare furniture is in it’s own world. You have a larger set of needs in the healthcare industry from durability of 24/7 use, to infection control, all the way to ultimate patient care and comfort. And we are no stranger to these needs. We have solutions from nurses station seating all the way to trendelenburg sleepers.

 

Compact Mobile Storage for Supplies

Many hospital storage requirements are vast and complex. Working closely with the people who know the facility best, we can develop over 70 new and efficient storage areas that can be strategically positioned throughout the facility. Installing high-density compact storage systems can assist in storing various pharmaceuticals, medical documents, equipment, and other critical resources. Through the use of precision controlled synchronized mechanical carriages we can ensure fragile items are fully protected at all times, and we can fully utilize all storage areas and eliminate aisle space.

Healthcare Modular Casework

 

Hospitals are ever-changing and infection control is everyone’s top priority.

With modular casework, it is 100% reconfigurable and designed with infection prevention in mind. It is engineered for your exact specifications, making it a superior alternative to built-in millwork. In addition to lower cost ownership we offer solutions that are environmentally responsible. It is one of the best solutions for healthcare environments such as exam, patient, emergency and procedure rooms, laboratories, pharmacies, cafeterias, doctor’s offices, nursing and reception stations and waiting rooms.

 

Storage Carousels

Hospitals in the United States are benefiting from innovative storage solutions.

Storage carousels are easy to integrate in any hospital organization. Thanks to the safe and secure storage provided by these systems, many hospitals throughout the United States have been installing them. Constant inventory control is ensured thanks to easy integration in existing IT systems. It is nearly impossible that expiration dates inadvertently go unnoticed. The design of the containers is adapted to meet specific application requirements. Thus articles do not have to be stacked during storage. These systems use less floor space compared to shelf storage. You save time when locating and retrieving stored items. Sensitive materials are safeguarded with locking mechanisms and access codes. Required items or instruments are automatically delivered to the access point at an ergonomic retrieval height. Intelligent controllers and software solutions ensure optimal inventory monitoring and control. The retrofit installation of a storage carousel creates additional space in existing environments.

We have extensive experience working with many specialist medical facilities and hospitals and our solutions have helped to overcome many of the issues faced with hospitals today. Just some of the areas in which we have made a difference include:

Optimized Metal Shelving Keeps Active Stock Up Front

In one such installation, we were able to install compact mobile storage in conjunction with stationary shelving. This was also introduced into over 50 areas for the purpose of bulk, pharmaceutical and supplies storage. Where required, fast-moving sorter shelves were fitted to the ends of each shelving unit to ensure active stock was stored up front and that drugs and other supplies could be retrieved quickly and effectively.

Nurse Servers Storage

Point-of-need storage solutions that save time and let nurses focus their energies on caring for their patients.

Ask any nurse what they don’t have enough of in their day-to-day work and you’ll get the same answer: time. With many patients to help and tasks to complete, the last thing nurses want is to waste their precious time searching around for much-needed medical supplies.

Nurse servers are simple solutions that store important medical supplies and equipment directly in the patient’s room, allowing nurses to access the resources they need without having to leave the patient’s side. These point-of-need storage facilities can save time and reduce patient disruptions by ensuring key supplies are exactly where they need to be.

You’ll be amazed by the difference smart hospital solutions can make.
