Based on historical usage data, DSI work with Supply Chain and Nursing Staff to establish PAR levels levels to ensure stock for a given time period. Your PAR quantities are then placed into our high density storage units which are divided into two equally sized bins - Main bin and Backup bin, split 50/50.
As care-givers need supplies, they pull from the Main bin. Inventory techs review physical storage areas for empty Main bins and record them via handheld device. It's a quick and easy way to spot what inventory is needed. As stock is replenished, Backup is moved first to Main, and then new supplies are placed in Backup.
