NICU, Charleston, SC
Like so many healthcare facilities, this customer was struggling to do more with less. They are short-staffed and frequently face stockouts of some of their faster-moving supplies, especially over the weekends. Working collaboratively with the NICU Staff we were able to design an efficient, clean Supply Room that set them up for success. Leveraging a mix of Basket Shelving with Dividers, Flat Wire Shelving, and high-density Distribution Carts we addressed some of their core needs while reducing the amount of time spent by their Supply Tech on replenishing supplies.

Key Accomplishments for This Site
Built customized carts based on the size of supplies and even added pillow carts to neatly store and easily access pillows.
By creating “Max Fit” PAR Levels, we were able to nearly eliminate stockouts, even on the weekends when Supply Techs were off-duty, ensuring the Nursing Staff had the supplies they need when they need them.
Saved Supply Tech Time
Provided a solution that allowed the Supply Tech to transport a large amount of supplies to Supply Rooms, including the NICU. This reduced the amount of time the Supply Tech spent on stocking the NICU by up to 66%.
Time Spent On-Site
2 days on-site to install with 3 LogiQuip Team Members and 2 hospital employees. All carts were built off-site and sent over to minimize staff interruptions.
