Spacesaver helps a hospital gain 38% more storage space
20 Nov 2017
When people think about the concept of “patient care,” they typically imagine nurses and doctors. But patient care is also a top concern for behind-the-scenes hospital staff who work in facilities management and sterile supply rooms. The more efficiently and thoroughly staff can perform their daily tasks, the better the quality of care that the hospital as a whole can provide.
With this knowledge, a hospital in Lincoln, Nebraska, used a surgical supply room renovation as an opportunity to create a storage system that would optimize space and allow staff to use their time more efficiently. The project planning team decided to install LEVPRO, a storage system that consists of shelving units that can be rolled along an overhead track.
The system saves space and is easy to clean because the shelving units “levitate” above the floor and eliminate the need for the floor-mounted rails that are required by traditional mobile systems. The new LEVPRO system allowed the sterile storage area to gain 38% more space for storing surgical kits and other operating room supplies.
On a practical level, the team realized the system could help achieve cost and space savings, but more importantly, they realized it would help sterile technicians perform their jobs more efficiently and keep patient care at the forefront.
