Hospital Storage

Save Hospital Space with Automatic Stacking Bed Lifts

Hospital Bed Lifts

stacking hospital bed storage liftsOne of the fastest ways hospital space is used up is from the inefficient storage of unused or broken hospital beds, gurneys, and stretchers. They’re often stored haphazardly in hallways and corridors, causing fire hazards and making it difficult for staff to maneuver throughout the hospital, not to mention the potential risk of injury. Automatic stacking bed lifts solve all of these problems by using vertical space to stack beds, allowing multiple beds to be stored in a single bed footprint. This makes the bed lifts an ideal solution for storing broken beds in need of repair, since they are stored out of the way but can still be accessed easily by staff. And by removing unused beds from hallways and corridors, you can more easily meet JCAHO standards for hospital bed storage.

If your hospital is like many others, then your storage space is almost always at a premium. And with doctors, nurses, and healthcare staff busy saving lives, it’s not always easy or feasible to take the time to find better storage solutions. That’s why we’re here to help.

How the Bed Lifts Work

stacking hospital bed liftsThe bed lifts are constructed with an innovative and durable design that is easy to use. The first bed to be stored is rolled onto the lift. The user then simply pushes a button and the bed is lifted, leaving open space underneath for the next bed to be loaded. The bed lifts are available in capacities of three, four, and five beds and have a weight capacity of 600 lbs.

A variety of options and accessories are also available so you can tailor your bed lift solution to your needs. Optional accessories include:

  • Platform inserts for narrow bases such as stretchers
  • Roll-down security gates to prevent unauthorized access
  • Anti-microbial paint for increased protection against pathogens as well as mold, mildew, and fungus
  • Preventative maintenance package program

Pediatric Emergency Carts with Drawers Based on Broselow Tape

pediatric emergency carts with Broselow-Tape drawersSince the 1980’s, the Broselow Tape has been used to help emergency room personnel treat children. The color-coded tape helps relate a child’s height and weight to the dosages and equipment that should be used. With that in mind, StoreMoreStore now offers a line of pediatric emergency carts with drawers that match the Broselow Tape.

Why the Drawers are Based on Broselow Tape?

The pediatric emergency carts store everything you need to respond to life or death situations including reference books, medications, airway equipment, and IV solutions. This specially design cart will improve response time and effectiveness by keeping the right size equipment easily accessible and already sorted for the size infant or child that you’re attempting to revive.

In fact, a 2005 study shows that pediatric carts that have drawers based on the Broselow Tape were easier to use than standard carts. “In addition, subjects located intubation equipment and nasogastric tubes significantly faster when using the Broselow cart, and correct equipment was provided significantly more often with the Broselow cart. These data suggest that sites caring for pediatric patients should consider modeling their resuscitation carts after the Broselow cart to enhance provider confidence and patient safety.”

Features of Our Pediatric Emergency Cart

Depending on the specific model you choose, features may vary, but overall each pediatric emergency cart has these available options:

  • Colors – 17 powder coat colors available in two-tone or solid finish.
  • Double Wall Construction – All aluminum and most of the steel carts have double-wall construction for long-lasting use, durability, and strength.
  • Plastic Top – Extra thick top has a 1/2″ inch ridge to keep things from falling off when moving your cart. Tops are latex-free where indicated.
  • Twin Poly Push Handles – Handles make carts easier to push and steer. Available only on specified carts.
  • Full Extension Ball Bearing Drawer Slides – Full extension drawers allow you to see all the items in the drawer.
  • Casters – Ranging from 2″ economy to 5″ premium quality casters as specified per cart model.

Kanban Nursing Supply Storage | Plastic Bins & Wire Shelving Carts

What is a Kanban System?Kanban System Storing Nursing Supplies with Wire Shelving Carts and Plastic Bins

The Kanban system is based on the first-in, first-out (FIFO) principle. Two bins are set up with nursing supplies, one in front of the other. Products are taken from the front bin. Once the last item pulled from the front bin, it’s placed on the top shelf of the cart. The second bin is moved forward, and supplies are pulled from this bin.

To replenish the supplies, the material handler comes in and scans each of the bins on the top shelf to indicate the items that need to be re-stocked. The count is 100% accurate every time and requires only a few seconds per empty bin.

When the material handler delivers the exact amount needed to replenish the bin, he simply places the full bin behind the front bin; thus, guaranteeing first-in, first-out and virtually eliminating the chances of having expired items.

2 Essential Storage Items for Getting Started with a Kanban System
