Effective medication storage is crucial in hospitals, as it ensures that medications are readily available when needed and stored in a manner that maintains their safety and effectiveness. There are various storage solutions used in hospital pharmacies, including pharmacy FIFO (first in, first out) shelving, narcotics cabinets, medication dispensing cabinets, and adjustable pharmacy workstations. These solutions help ensure that medications are organized, controlled, and dispensed efficiently.

Pharmacy FIFO Shelving

Our modern hospital pharmacy shelving is unique in several ways. The sloped shelves slide out, making it easy to view, retrieve, or restock medications. FIFO restocking of medications is super easy since the shelves are slanted and pull-out. The medication storage shelves have adjustable clear dividers and bin fronts, making organizing and labeling shelves simple.

Medication Dispensing Cabinets

Medication dispensing cabinets provide the highest level of security for controlled medications. Administrators can control who can access what medications, when, and for which patients.

When a nurse scans the patient’s identification, the cabinet dispenses the correct dosage in a secure, tamper-proof package.

A biometric (fingerprint) identification, proximity card, username, and password are required to access the cabinet. The medication storage cabinet is equipped with audit tracking and automated inventory management. The cabinets are available in freestanding and desktop units and cart models.

Narcotics Cabinets

Narcotics cabinets store controlled substances like opioids and other powerful pain medications. These cabinets are made of heavy-duty materials and designed to be tamper-proof, with multiple locks to prevent unauthorized access.

Adjustable Pharmacy Workstations

Adjustable pharmacy workstations are customizable and designed to meet a hospital’s or pharmacy’s specific needs. These workstations typically consist of shelves, bins, and drawers that can be arranged and configured to suit the facility’s needs. Adjustable pharmacy workstations allow hospitals and pharmacies to optimize their storage space and efficiently organize their medications and supplies.

Healthcare Testimonials

parkland hospital

“Southwest Solutions Group assisted us in the setup of equipment and services for our offsite medical record warehouse housing over one million charts. They have moved over 330,000 records from the main hospital to the medical record warehouse in a weekend time period, and converted thousands of charts for us. They have provided us a new chart tracking system, labeling system, and file conversion services over a multi-month process. Their IT group was able to modify our existing records management software to “talk” to our main software program so we could print color coded labels for our medical record charts. In addition, they have provided many other services to Parkland hospital including file shelving, hospital storage equipment needs, and software support. Southwest Solutions Group does exceptional work.”

“Thank you for your donation! I wanted to let you know that we ordered a donor sign for our storage room. The sign will be displayed outside the storage room located near the main kitchen/dining room. This should give you some good exposure!”
