Shelving & Storage Features That Will Benefit Your Pharmacy

Pharmacies carry out essential duties such as supplying people with critical medication and providing solutions for patients' ailments and requirements. Because of pharmacies' crucial role in many people's lives, every pharmacy's layout should promote success and productivity.

When a pharmacy lacks proper cabinets, countertops, and storage units, the entire team risks experiencing issues such as losing important information and disorganization. There is no room for error when handling confidential information and important medications. By installing advanced casework and millwork solutions in your pharmacy, your team can better complete daily duties and responsibilities.

New casework and millwork solutions come equipped with features that benefit your pharmacy. Here are several types of advanced casework and millwork that can improve the day-to-day operations at your pharmacy.

Enhanced Shelves

When a pharmacy is cluttered and disorganized, it puts the pharmacy at risk of unwanted mistakes and accidents. By installing properly structured shelving units, your employees are better able to locate needed medications quickly.

Medical bottles come in a variety of sizes. Your shelves should be able to properly store and organize every size so that your staff can manage each bottle. R.C. Smith can design pharmacy shelving units specifically designed for organizing both short and tall Rx bottles. Our craftsmen ensure each shelf is durable and ready to perform day in and day out.

Additional Storage

Because pharmacies house a variety of products, the back area should have several types of storage shelves and units that are easily accessible and well organized. R.C. Smith can design end panels and other storage units to properly hold all the different products and technologies your pharmacy carries and utilizes.

Privacy Screens

Customer information is highly confidential. A pharmacy is often responsible for keeping records, names, and other personal details hidden from everyday bystanders and visitors. Your pharmacy may need privacy screens or dividers to protect this sensitive information.

Our expert designers will take the time to understand your pharmacy's requirements. We will create a layout that allows your staff to succeed in every aspect of their jobs, including maintaining confidentiality regulations.

Enhanced Work Surfaces

A pharmacist's job is extremely important. In order to ensure your staff performs to the best of their abilities, you should equip your pharmacy with comfortable working conditions. R.C. Smith can help you maximize your team's efficiency with advanced countertops and work surfaces, including countertops with adjustable heights.

Creating a space that is comfortable and easy to navigate will help your team succeed at what they do. If your pharmacy's back area needs advanced workspace solutions, contact R.C. Smith today.

Advanced Cabinetry

No pharmacy workstation is complete without organized and accessible cabinets. Whether your pharmacy needs cabinets with several drawers for vial storage or your team is in need of a cabinet to surround your pharmacy's sink, R.C. Smith has the expertise and design experience to create the storage space you need.

At R.C. Smith, we understand that pharmacies have specific needs and requirements. We'll take the time to understand your pharmacy's specific duties so that we can create cabinets that meet your needs.

Drop-Off and Pick-Up Counters

As a pharmacy, you will want your customers to be greeted by a space that appears clean, cohesive, and well-put together. Because customers' first impressions are typically the drop-off counter, you should ensure that the space fosters a welcoming and well-organized ambiance.

R.C. Smith can design a countertop area that promotes easy interactions between your staff and customers. We'll install countertops that invite your customers to pick up their prescriptions with ease and efficiency.

As you can see, proper casework and millwork play a vital role in the success of your pharmacy's daily operations. Your pharmacy's layout also provides an impression for your customers. By installing advanced cabinets, countertops, and storage areas, you can assist your staff with their everyday responsibilities.

Different Types of Pharmacies Require Different Storage Solutions  

Custom features like cabinetry and storage will streamline the processes in any pharmacy setting, so let's look at five different types you might find in your local area and where you can find storage solutions for each one.

Retail Pharmacy

Minute clinics, along with pharmacies within retail and grocery stores, are becoming increasingly popular. Why is this the case? One of the main reasons is that it offers convenience for shoppers, a one-stop shop where you can get what you need all in one place. Retail pharmacies can be found in practically every state.

Assisted Living and Long-Term Care Pharmacies

It is becoming more popular for assisted living and long-term care facilities to have an in-house pharmacy. This is because they provide convenience for the residents and a dose of geriatric empathy toward health-related issues many residents face.

Compounding Pharmacy

In the healthcare field, one size fits all will not fly. Medications react differently to different people, as there are complications and underlying health conditions for some but not others. That is why compounding pharmacies allow for a more personalized medical care experience. This means medicines are customized to the specific needs of each patient.

Clinic Pharmacy

Clinic pharmacies handle a variety of duties, from administrative tasks to filling prescriptions for the doctors or nurses in the office. One unique feature of clinic pharmacies is the ability to specialize in a particular medical service or medication per the needs of their patients.

Hospital Pharmacy

In a hospital pharmacy setting, both inpatient and outpatient services are offered. The former works closely with doctors and nurses to ensure medication dispensation is accurate, while the latter advises patients on how to take their medication correctly.

With so many different types of pharmacies, you need quality storage solutions. That is where R.C. Smith comes in. We offer simple solutions with strong results. Our cabinetry is designed to improve workflow, productivity, and the outcome of patients.
