Beyond Clean Podcast

"I believe the closer our industry moves toward rewarding fresh opinions, the more of them we will see in our frontline technicians, leaders, and innovators. The more we listen to new voices and outside perspectives, the better equipped our industry will become to handle the changing world around us. On the other hand, the harder we make it for individuals to grow and gain a platform for their opinions, the less likely they will be to engage in the future.

When someone asks if storage is an issue for your Sterile Processing department, what is your first response…to roll your eyes perhaps? But what if looking up…is the ticket? Let’s face it, the need for space in Sterile Processing is an issue for many healthcare facilities and the implications of not having enough storage to keep up with the demand of the OR means potential revenue lost. On this episode of the Beyond Clean Vendor Spotlight Series we talk with Amy Flynn, North American OR/CS Market Manager for Hänel Storage Systems about the lessons learned from other industries in using vertical space to combat the storage issues that come with adding new procedures and equipment. The vertical storage carousel technology that has benefited countless industries is available to help decrease the time it takes to pick a case cart, integrate with tracking systems to give real-time inventory data, protect the staff in your department from an ergonomic perspective, and ultimately make better use of what little storage space is available. It’s time to look up and tune in to learn more.
