Hospital Needs New Solution for Patient Medical Records Storage
A modern highly productive hospital that specializes in the treatment of neurological and psychiatric disorders needed a better solution for storing patient medical records. The hospital was running out of space and needed a storage system that would fit in their current storage area yet offer more storage capacity. A Lektriever vertical carousel was chosen because it met the hospital’s space requirements and provided quick access to patient files.

Why The Hospital Chose the Lektriever Vertical Carousel
The hospital chose Lektriever vertical carousels because they are committed to promoting the highest standards both in medical technology and in-hospital organization for the 15,000 patients that are seen each year. And these quality standards extend to the management of patient medical records, which is why the hospital needed a more efficient storage system. Due to space limitations and the challenge to provide a safe, ergonomic and effective solution, the hospital decided in favor of a Lektriever vertical carousel.
The Lektriever consists of a series of vertically arranged revolving file shelves. Because the carousel maximizes the use of vertical space, it requires a much smaller footprint, but in fact, will increase storage capacity. At the push of a button, the shelves will rotate to automatically bring requested files to an ergonomically positioned work counter.
This is what made the vertical carousel the optimal choice for the hospital to store frequently accessed files and documents. The space savings allowed the hospital to use their same storage area and increase the amount for records that could be kept in the space. And to ensure the records could be easily accessed and removed, they are kept in hanging folders.
