Increase Productivity While Decreasing Costs

Productivity is something that no workplace should take for granted. This is especially true in a healthcare setting. When every second counts, doctors, nurses and surgical technicians cannot afford to waste time waiting for clean scrubs or searching for the right size in a messy storage closet. Your organization also cannot afford to waste money on replacing scrubs that are accidentally thrown away or taken home by your employees. You do not want to risk spreading healthcare associated infections (HAIs) by not properly processing your scrubs. Our simple solution? IDS’ ScrubTrak machine.

ScrubTrak customers have saved tens of thousands of dollars in their facilities by reducing annual scrub purchases by 90% and saving 35% in laundering costs. Our system allows you to have full control over your scrub inventory by tracking who is gaining access to your scrubs. Now, they simply scan their ID and choose to dispense their saved scrub set or pick a new size if they wish. It also ensures that unauthorized users do not have access to your scrubs.

One of the biggest benefits of our ScrubTrak machines is that they can be placed in multiple locations throughout your facility. Having satellite locations as opposed to one central hub cuts down on the amount of time people have to stand in line and wait for scrubs, as well as decreases the travel time of doctors and nurses. Instead, they find the closest machine and either dispense their scrubs or get new scrubs. It also cuts down on employees having to dig through scrubs to find the right size. Now, they simply have to scan their ID, choose a size and the machine will dispense their scrubs. It is that easy!

Infection control is a major concern in hospitals. Utilizing an open closet, as opposed to the ScrubTrak solution, puts your employees at risk of taking infectious diseases out into the public, and even your house. By installing Scrubtrak, you ensure that your hospital’s scrub policy is being adhered to and you are reducing the risk of spreading infectious bacteria and HAI’s.

Hospital Scrubs in Public? What Are Your Thoughts?

ScrubTrak - Scrub DispenserHave you ever found yourself walking down the street or on the train during the morning commute and next to you is someone wearing a classic pair of hospital scrubs? What you’re seeing may be a bit more than just someone on their way to or from work – you may be looking at someone exposing everyone around them to danger, depending on the situation.

According to a recent report out of Tampa Bay, Florida, many local hospitals in the area were found to either have poor enforcement or no enforcement whatsoever regarding how often healthcare professionals need to clean their scrubs, change their scrubs and whether they’re allowed to be worn in the first place outside of the hospital environment.

The Dangers of Wearing Scrubs in Public

When it comes to things like germ and pathogen transfer, scrubs in public represent something of a two way street. In certain situations, a person who wears a pair of scrubs in an operating room or other emergency room environment could take pathogens from that location out into the world with them if they wear their scrubs when they leave the building. While it is unlikely that a doctor would go fresh from the operating room down the street to lunch without changing, it is still a very real concern.

However, it is not the biggest issue that this situation poses. A person who is allowed to wear their scrubs out in public could potentially bring outside contaminants INTO a highly sensitive medical environment, thus posing a risk to patients, other medical professionals and more. This is a large part of the reason why it is recommended that hospitals and other healthcare facilities institute a policy regarding where scrubs should and should not be worn and how often they need to be cleaned moving forward.

The Benefits of a Scrub Dispenser

ScrubTrak - Dispensing Scrubs ScrubTrak, a scrub dispenser from Intelligent Dispensing Solutions, is a piece of equipment that is designed to help relieve exactly these types of problems in the most innovative ways possible. Scrubs are dispensed from a vending machine, similar to the way you might pick up a candy bar or a cold snack on your lunch break. Not only can healthcare professionals keep a clean pair of scrubs within arm’s reach at all times, but the machine itself is also tied directly to both the healthcare facility’s inventory and to a user ID and other identifying account information. Administrators can keep track of how scrubs are being used, how long they’re being used and more – all from one innovative solution.

Wearing scrubs out in public could pose a danger to everyone who comes into contact with such a person, which is why innovative solutions like the medical scrub dispenser are so important in the first place. They’re using the latest that technology has to offer to make the world a safer, healthier place for everyone involved.
