The Importance of Sterile Storage Drawers

  • Posted On : 5/27/2020 11:49 AM

Most healthcare facilities have insufficient storage space. At first, sterile storage spaces are designed to fit the needs and equipment of the facility. Unfortunately, with time, more medical processes are conducted which require more material. The existing storage area becomes too small for storing sterile equipment affecting their sterility.

The reason it is so important to have an appropriate amount of storage space is because that is what allows things to be stored properly, and in this case, stay sterile. Sterility is incredibly important in any type of healthcare facility because the tools and items that are used with patients need to be as sterile as possible. This will prevent the spread of germs and disease. This is especially important when it comes to any type of surgical procedure in which case the item will come into contact with an open wound or cavity of the body.

Maintaining the sterility of instruments, supplies and materials is hard. The sterility of these materials needs to be maintained until they are used again. The way that the instruments are stored after they have been sterilized is very important and needs to be done correctly. There needs to be absolutely no contact between sterile objects and non-sterile objects, so organized storage solutions are critical. There are also several factors that affect the sterility of products, which include: 

  • Environmental conditions such as ventilation, humidity and cleanliness.
  • The location where sterile products are stored.
  • Storing sterile items with non-sterile items.
  • Storing sterile items in decontamination areas or patient treatment areas.

All these factors affect the sterility of devices, making them unsafe for use. Sterile storage drawers are a valid storage item for sterile equipment. FlowCARE designs and fabricates sterile storage drawers that maintain the sterility of your equipment. Whether the sterility was achieved at your facility or an outside manufacturer, these medical storages are efficient and of quality.

Sterile storage drawers are vital in providing quality care. Nurses can easily access sterile devices to use without having to resterilize each time. Resterilizing wastes a lot of time that would have been spent addressing the needs of individual patients. Thus, care is provided, improving the overall health outcome of your patients.

Sterile storage drawers provide the right environmental conditions that are required to maintain sterility. Nurses and physicians do not have to worry about contamination when using them. Healthcare institutions need to teach their staff handling practices to ensure the function and sterility of medical equipment is maintained. Developing policies and procedures for sterile storage will go a long way in improving healthcare to patients.
