MEDSTOR MAXIMISES STORAGE AND IMPROVES EFFICIENCY AT MALLOW GENERAL HOSPITAL
Medstor recently completed a project at Mallow General Hospital in Cork, working with the hospital’s endoscopy department to achieve the most efficient use of space, not only maximising storage but also improving efficiency. Improved product identification and stock rotation, elimination of time-expired items and better nursing efficiencies in relation to product retrievals, all helped the hospital to achieve its goals. The new areas also offer enhanced infection control and were designed and fitted to accommodate the department’s new technologies.
Mallow’s endoscopy department wanted a clean line storage system, featuring a bespoke colour-coded scheme, to be installed in both the procedure rooms and storerooms. Medstor’s business development manager worked closely with the hospital’s architect to ensure the chosen systems would enable optimum use of space and support nursing efficiency.
The hospital chose products from Medstor’s HTM71 modular system range, including full height grey cabinets with tambour doors and hygienic sloping tops, matching grey worktops, and contrasting wall-mounted pharmacy units. Drawer and base units complied with the hospital’s colour-coding system. These practical, stylish cabinets fit seamlessly to improve area hygiene, and were supplied with Medstor’s internal liners, system trays and arresters, supporting implementation of the hospital materials management Kanban system
The storage solutions Medstor provided for Mallow General Hospital are typical of the highly effective products it designs for healthcare facilities throughout the world. Every element of each racking system or cabinet has beautifully simple, clean, sleek lines that not only complement the theatre or ward design but offer increased storage capacity, better cost efficiency through improved stock control, and dramatically enhanced infection control. As everything made by Medstor is designed and built in-house in the UK, quality is controlled from start to finish, with a dedicated team working together to guarantee the most successful and aesthetic utilisation of space.
