Upgrading a Medical Simulation Center’s Storage

Upgrading a Medical Simulation Centers Storage

A new 15,000 square-foot simulation center at this medical college looks like a typical campus building from the outside, but the interior tells a different story. Instead of large lecture halls, the center offers high-tech simulation rooms complete with hyper-realistic medical equipment, high-fidelity mannequins, and video cameras for training and debriefing.

The ultimate goal is to improve patient care by giving students realistic, hands-on training in medical procedures like providing oxygen therapy and inserting and removing IVs.

Here’s how Spacesaver storage products helped staff and students save space and promote efficiency.

High-Density Mobile Storage

Not all the expensive simulation equipment is in use all the time, so storage was a major concern during the building’s design phase. The architect optimized storage space by designing a large room fitted with a Spacesaver high-density mobile system.

The system allows staff to store mannequins, medical equipment, and other items in about half the space that these items would require on static shelving. Tambour doors at the open end of the system roll down and lock to secure the valuable contents.

Day Use Lockers

Because the staff was so pleased with the high-density system, they contacted the local Spacesaver consultant again when they noticed a storage issue in the debriefing rooms. The debriefing rooms are adjacent to the simulation rooms, and they provide a space for instructors and students to meet before and after practice sessions and tests. No one is allowed to take backpacks or other personal belongings inside the simulation rooms, so students and instructors were leaving these items in their cars or out in the hallways.

The Spacesaver consultant worked with them to design sleek, sturdy Day Use Lockers in the debriefing rooms to give them a place to stash backpacks, notebooks, and other items before entering the simulation rooms.

Stacking Your Hospital Beds? You Should Be.

Searching for effective hospital storage solutions, where extra space is always at a premium? Stop looking around, and start looking up!

That’s the bright idea behind new versatile bed stacking technology for healthcare applications, and clients couldn’t be happier with the results. Read on to learn more, and find out if a vertical hospital bed lift system is right for you.

How Vertical Hospital Bed Storage Works

By itself, a single hospital bed doesn’t take up much space in a hospital hallway or unit. However, add a second bed next to it, and a third bed, and that space starts to disappear pretty quickly. Now, take those three beds and stack them on top of each other. Their entire footprint shrinks to the size of just one bed, allowing for multiple units to be stored without wasting precious space. That’s how vertical hospital bed storage works.

What’s more, with vertical solutions like the Vidir BedLift system, there is no heavy lifting required! Vidir has perfected hospital bed storage by developing a motorized rack to stack and secure beds from the floor to the ceiling. Think of it as an elevator for your hospital’s unused beds. Benefits of the Vidir BedLift system include:

  • Push-button loading and retrieval
  • One-person operation
  • LIFO picking (last in/first out configuration)
  • Customizable rack heights for storing multiple beds
  • Space-saving design
  • Safe and reliable
  • Removal of fire hazards and other risks
