Skåne University Hospital, Sweden
The storage of medical materials was not efficiently organized at Skåne University Hospital in Malmö. As a result, nurses often lost important time retrieving materials. That was the main reason that the hospital was looking for an efficient storage system.
The surgical department of Skåne University Hospital in Malmö is equipped with a new mobile storage system Compactus® Original XT. The mobile compact system is for emergency surgeries during evenings and weekends.
The new storage system replaced an existing older storage system. However, a new room was chosen. In the last storage room, they had a system for both anesthesia and tools / accessories, which meant that they sometimes had to wait for each other to pick all the material needed for the surgery, and sometimes the staff is in a hurry. So in their new room, they chose to separate anesthesia and other products.
To ensure efficient work, it was decided to move the storage of the anesthesia department to another room.
The purple/pink storage begins with a fixed section, where they always have quick access to blood products and sutures. In other shelves, instruments, screws, plates, pins and prostheses are stored. In the blue system, anesthesia has all its accessories. Both systems are equipped with a hand crank.
Some special solutions were also made. One which we call “a wine rack” where the customer can store longer products as desired. Their automatic door opener was put them on one of the front panels.
