Medication Carts for Sale
It seems so obvious that it barely merits mentioning: sick people need medication. Hospitalized patients can be prescribed dozens of medications at a time, and this is no different for people with multiple chronic conditions living in the community or being treated in the outpatient setting.
Of course, it follows that nurses who work in these settings can administer hundreds of different medications on a typical shift, to upwards of dozens of patients. There is an obvious safety aspect to this that merits further consideration, as well as that of the efficiency of workflows for hospital staff as they navigate their workplace, provide care, and administer medications.
Luckily, there are a broad range of medication carts for sale that can meet the exacting needs of your space, your staff, and your health care system.
Why Medication Carts Matter
Medication carts make a surprisingly large impact on the overall safety and efficiency of medication administration in the hospital and long-term care setting.
For example, you need to have the right number of drawers of your carts, and drawers of the correct dimensions to suit the needs of the number of patients of residents you have and the contents that will be stored.
Safety is paramount when considering any new medication cart system. Having too few drawers may mean that patients end up having to share a drawer, increasing the risk of medication administration errors that can be potentially deadly.
You will also need to consider the number of carts needed, their location in the hospital, and the need for portability, such as with the use of wheeled carts.
