The health care industry requires storage systems for everything from the archiving of patient records and X-rays to the preservation of medicines. Each health care organisation has different requirements, dependent on capacity, accessibility and layout. Bruynzeel Storage Systems offers customised health care storage systems that are ideal for pharmacies, hospitals and pharmaceutical companies.
Storage of medical documents
The length of time a patient’s record should be kept is determined by law. The length of time varies, depending on the type of record. In the UK’s National Health Service, for example, the length of time a record should be retained is governed by guidelines set by the Department of Health. Often files that have been in storage for years need to be retrieved at short notice and, on occasion, accessed on a daily basis thereafter. In such situations, good quality archiving is of the utmost importance. With the increased use of digital patient files, compact solutions such as Bruynzeel’s mobile shelving systems will ensure that essential paper files take up the minimum of space.
Hospitals and GP’s offices can use mobile shelving for efficient storage of medical records, allowing X-rays, mammograms and so on to be stored in a compact area. This type of storage saves space, thereby cutting estates costs. In addition to mobile storage Bruynzeel also offers a large range of static office cabinets suitable for use in the health care industry.
Prevent bacterial contamination
Antimicrobial powder coating
Our fixed and mobile Sysco® shelving can be finished with a special antimicrobial powder coating. Ideal for the storage of objects that need to be protected be against bacteria such as E.coli, MRSA, and Listeria, the antimicrobial powder coating gives extra protection against infection and minimises the risk of cross-contamination.
The coating is not a substitute for proper cleaning procedures, but does give users the peace of mind that every step is being taken to promote a hygienic environment.
