Radiology Room Uses Modular Casework
When a medical facility was building its pediatric radiology room, they needed a storage solution that would meet all of their infection control and security demands. The solution to these issues was specially designed modular casework with keypad locks. The modular casework was customized to fit within the sterile environment. The keypad locks provide an additional layer of security that allow specialty items like Botox to be stored without risk of theft.
Infection Control & Security are Top Priorities for Pediatric Radiology Room
There were a number of challenges in designing modular casework for the sterile environment in a pediatric radiology room:
Certain items were at high risk for theft, yet medical personnel still needs quick access to them for procedures. Storing the items outside the lab would be bad for infection control, and giving keys to employees would hamper productivity.
The Design of the Pediatric Radiology Room’s Modular Casework
The glass thermofoil doors coordinating with the natural almond laminate of the wall cabinets present no seaming because they are fused on and wrapped around the cabinet. There are no grooves for possible bacterial build-up. Steel kickplates eliminate capillary action and permit attachment to epoxy flooring. Matching trim was provided to frame out the cabinets in the drywall so that the entire modular casework area is sealed from the outside. Catheter supplies are stored by size on pull-out rods in cabinets developed specifically to hold them, in addition to vertical storage for medical files.
Keypad Locks Attached to the Modular Casework Secure Stored Items
Pass codes on keypad locks for the modular casework lining the walls of the lab can easily be changed with personnel changes and allow flexibility in determining access and tracking supplies. Doctors and technicians can be permitted access only to those items necessary for their specific operation. (Click here to find out more about keyless lock solutions).
