If you’re struggling to manage your medical scrub inventory, you aren’t alone. Many health systems and medical facilities have a difficult time managing all of their scrubs. Staff members sometimes leave the facility wearing their scrubs, there may not be enough for all staff members, or staff may not be able to find the sizes they need.
These struggles can cause inventory shortages, which ultimately results in paying a lot of money to replace missing scrubs – and headaches for you. Unfortunately, administrators typically have to manage these shortages and costs when they should be focusing on patient care.
At ImageFIRST, we don’t want our customers to go to great lengths to track down missing scrubs or manage inventory. You should have access to all the scrubs you need, exactly when you need them. That’s why we’re introducing the ImageFIRST ScrubVAULT system.
What is the ScrubVAULT System?
The ScrubVAULT system is an easy-to-use locker with a compact footprint that stores, dispenses, and tracks distribution of scrubs. This system givea you full visibility of scrub inventory and usage, so you’ll never have to worry about where your scrubs are. The locker securely stores scrubs and can be opened with a code unique to each staff member.
The Magic of UHF RFID Chips
Each set of scrubs is tagged with a safe and non-invasive UHF RFID chip, which is used to track and manage scrubs. Jay Juffre, vice president of operations and national service director of ImageFIRST, explains, “Our clients were already using this technology to monitor hospital equipment, so it made sense to use it for scrubs. Using our proprietary ImageFIRST ScrubVAULT System with our fully-managed scrub program, facilities can easily keep track of who borrowed scrubs and when they were returned.”
UHF RFID technology can also track the number and sizes of the scrubs taken. It offers real-time information and helps us and our customers know when it’s time to replenish scrubs.
