Separating the business of health care from health care itself is sometimes a little harder than we would like it to be. We would like to think of the resources as endless and priceless. We would assume our safety is not simply an issue of punching a clock. Of course, for the hands-on people working in a medical office or other kind of health clinic, that is probably the case. No one got into this business to make a killing.
That said, supplies remain important and the office’s ability to administer care can be negatively affected by any unnecessary “breakage” or unexpected loss of medical supplies. This is why an office vending machine loaded with rubber gloves, gauze, and a variety of other necessary medical supplies can actually help with overhead and day-to-day operations in equal measure.
A custom vending machine will assure the institution’s medical supplies are readily available at all times. It will also assure that a wrong move in a supply closet does not result in the contamination of large swaths of medical supplies. Safety is a boon for medical workers and those in management alike–one less stressful variable in a stressful environment.
Keeping a stock of basic medical supplies in a healthcare medical vending machine is not an entirely new idea. These days anything and everything seems game for a vending machine as the Intelligent Vending Solutions’ website and this blog might suggest.
The practical function of having band-aids, gauze, alcohol swabs and other basic medical supplies in and around any place should be clear to anyone. Emergencies happen. More often, small little mishaps occur that require attention quickly and can be handled cheaply. Throwing in single sale band-aids can stop bleeding on a small cut that might otherwise necessitate a trip to the local pharmacy and a larger expenditure on a whole box of the things.
Aspirin and other pain relievers are also important to have around. You can never predict when a headache might pop up. These Aspirin and Tylenol vending machines can be mildly lucrative and mostly self sustaining in any environment. They are a great chance to offer sometimes necessary items at a reasonable price.
If you run an office or school, be sure your employees and students have access to these basics. A basic medical vending machine can be a nice boost to your coffers and a great convenience to the backbones of your institution.
