New Medical Center Needs Innovative Solution for Pharmacy Storage
A new health medical center offering innovative amenities like robotic surgery and patient concierge services was designed to compete with a neighboring pharmacy. When it came time to design the two pharmacies in the hospital – an 846 sq. ft. retail pharmacy and an 8,536 sq. ft. central pharmacy – they needed to match the high aesthetic and functional standard set by the rest of the hospital. A full range of modular casework including a two-way stainless steel cabinet, work surfaces, upper and lower cabinets, and modular drawers, was incorporated to meet the pharmacy’s requirements.
6 Special Features of the Pharmacy’s Modular Casework
1. To offer another line of defense against infection, a 500 sq. ft. ante room has the only access to the adjoining clean room. In the ante room is a two-way stainless steel cabinet built into the wall where technicians can unpack and load IV solutions and other supplies without needed to enter the clean room and compromise the air with cardboard or microbial particles.
2. The neonatal intensive care unit has its own compounding room that was fitted with all kinds of modular casework to facilitate efficiency. There is a medication pick station, glove box, sink, under-the-counter refrigeration unit, work desk counter space, and storage.
3. The open order entry area has two walls of storage to shield workers from the noise and heat of nearby carousels and refrigerators. Staff pharmacists are able to work at their desks and make phone calls in comfort while retaining easy access to medications.
4. In the retail and work pharmacies, black phenolic resin work surfaces offers the ultimate in chemical resistance and durability as well as providing a stark contrast to stray white pills.
5. In the employee fill area, storage aisle end caps are stocked with color-coded bins to aid with better organization.
6. The slanted removable panels under the sinks protect staff from hot pipes and meet ADA requirements.
