Surgery Center Storage Systems that Maximize Space and Enhance Productivity

Surgery Center Stainless Steel Casework

Southwest Solutions Group® implements KanBan and Six Sigma manufacturing efficiency methodologies in surgery centers to improve their bottom line and limit exposure to infectious germs in their operating rooms. Surgery Center Storage Systems like stainless steel casework and horizontal carousels maximize the use of available space and enhance the productivity of personnel in three key areas: storage inside the procedure room; supply storage outside the procedure room; and surgical kit prep areas. Click here to learn more about modular casework.  Available on Vizient GPO Contract #CE2900 (Vizient customers call for contract pricing.

Surgery Center Storage Systems Inside and Outside the Procedure Room

vizientStorage of surgical supplies inside the operating room uses antimicrobial powder-coated steel or stainless steel casework with pass-through wall cabinets that are stocked from outside the operating room. Pass-through cabinets allow re-stocking from outside the operating room even while a procedure is being conducted. The stainless steel casework pass-through cabinets limit the exposure to contaminants by reducing intrusions into the operating room. Pass-through cabinets are made of antimicrobial powder-coated steel or stainless steel and store all types of surgical supplies, including catheters and sterile scopes. If stainless steel casework pass-through cabinets cannot be incorporated, then non-pass-through cabinets can be used to create the same function, except re-stocking occurs after each procedure.

Storage of surgical supplies outside the operating room can be doubled (in most cases) with sliding or rolling high-density storage shelving units. These compact storage units typically support several rooms and ensure critical supplies will be available when needed.

Surgery Center Storage System Horizontal Carousels

Horizontal Carousels for Surgical Kit Prep Areas

The third element of an efficient surgery center is automating the preparation of surgical kits with horizontal carousels. Horizontal carousels are powered spinning shelves that bring kit items to the operator at a sterile pick station. Horizontal carousels use inventory management kitting software to increase operator productivity and accuracy and manage stock counts of inventoried supplies. Horizontal carousels use up to 80% less floor space (compared to traditional shelving with plastic bins).
