One of my favorite parts about managing inventory is the infinite possibilities for organization, storage, and space utilization. The options are endless; new and improved central storage, clearly defined treatment and exam room doors and using simple solutions for all of the clutter that tends to happen. There are many advantages to having a well organized, tidy central storage and treatment areas. Here’s what we can gain from clearly defined inventory areas:
When areas of storage are organized, you can see exactly what you have in stock so it limits over-ordering
It allows for sufficient stocking of exam rooms and treatment areas
In cases of emergencies or urgent treatments, the veterinary care team can find what they need, when they need it.
