Medstor acts quickly to provide COVID ward storage for Royal London
With a large quantity of consumables required to cater for the influx of patients into the ICUs at London hospitals during the first peak of the COVID-19 pandemic, , Medstor was brought in at very short notice to help the Royal London Hospital.
The company provided HTM 71 high-density storage cabinets for the storerooms serving the critical care and high dependency units at the hospital, ‘responding quickly and effectively’ to ensure that it had the storage it needed, and, in the process, helping to establish the capital’s largest critical care facility. As a few COVID-19 patients had already been admitted to one of the new wards when the fit-out started, Medstor installers wore full PPE and followed strict entry and exit rules.
‘Popular in hospitals throughout the UK and overseas’, Medstor HTM 71 high-density cabinets provide ample storage space for a wide variety of essential items, with a ‘unique’ tray and liner system facilitating access to products and monitoring of stock levels. They are available in a wide range of colours, and as free-standing or wall-fixed options.
Medstor said: “The storage solutions supplied to the Royal London are typical of the highly effective products we design for healthcare facilities worldwide Every element of each cabinet, trolley, or racking system has beautifully simple, clean, sleek lines that complement the theatre or ward design, offer increased storage capacity, better cost efficiency through improved stock control, and dramatically enhanced infection control.”
Everything Medstor makes is designed and built ‘in house’ in the UK, so quality is controlled ‘from start to finish’.
