Fitted hospital furniture can improve hospital organisation

How fitted storage cabinets can improve hospital organisation

Have you ever gone for a blood test or routine check-up only to find that you’re waiting in the consulting room as the nurse or doctor leaves to search for the missing equipment? We’ve all had an appointment at a busy hospital department and seen staff frantically racing around to locate items. The key to successful hospital organisation lies early on during the architectural design process. Fitted hospital furniture is an integral part of ensuring that the facility’s everyday operations run smoothly.

Consider the needs of the room

It’s essential to install the correct storage furniture in each part of a healthcare facility and this requires a thorough assessment of the room’s needs. The requirements of each space will depend on whether you’re designing a ward, a series of appointment rooms, or the operating room in a busy surgical centre.

For instance, if you’re planning out a nurse’s consulting room, then a series of double wall units might be ideal. If space is at a premium, you could also opt for a couple of corner wall units to maximise the square footage.

Fitted storage cupboards will ensure that the provider always has easy access to syringes, vials, bandages, and other essential items. A little foresight early on will make sure that each patient is dealt with efficiently, and the professional will feel more at ease during work. Easy access to materials also means that it’s less likely that there will be any gaps in care that could lead to mistakes in processing.

Create easily accessible central storage

When you’re designing a hospital layout, it’s crucial to consider how healthcare furniture can improve how the facility functions. The best way to do this is to make sure any central points between rooms or departments have appropriate storage facilities that provide easy access to all members of staff.

A ward drugs cupboard or urine test cupboard that serves several areas can be fitted discreetly in a separate room or against a corridor wall. At David Bailey, our medicine and urine cupboards are fitted with strong locks to ensure that only designated personnel can access the contents. For more general central storage, a series of tall units can also offer crucial extra space by using the full room height.
