Good Supply Management in the OR is Vital

Supplies are vital in the nursing care in the operating room. When management of inventory is handled poorly, this situation can possibly lead to patient complications, surgery delays or cancellations.

Inventory Management of Surgical Supply Storage Improved

Fortunately, in this case, Continental Metal Products could come to the rescue of the OR Nurse Manager. Since CMP, was the original supplier of this cabinet, we were able to provide a conversion kit. The hospital’s own facilities team was able to adhere pilaster strips, clips, and insert new stainless steel shelves to optimize storage.  

These stainless steel pilaster strips are attached to buttons, that were added as part of the conversion kit, to the inside of the cabinet. The strips can easily be removed for sterilization, promoting increased infection control. Now the appropriate number of stainless steel surgical storage shelves are added to the cabinet.
