STERILE PROCESSING DEPARTMENT IN PITTSBURGH, PA
Through our tailored approach, we saved the customer 20%, freed up space for future growth,
and more room space in the department to move efficiently. SKU placement was based on the application of different procedures, separated by General, Total Joint, Sports Med, Linen, Generic, and custom packs. We also provided signs for each cart with the correct category, recorded the SKU locations, and provided the customer with a master file that is sortable to find items when needed.
