Does your business work within the medical sector? Whether you run a hospital or a local nursing home, there are certain safety measures needed to keep patients safe. From data protection and physical safety, all the way through to controlled substances.
Secure Filing Cabinets for Medical Documents
If you’re a general practitioner or a hospital, you need to ensure the safety and security of all medical documentation. For smaller practices, this may be in the form of secure filing cabinets. But for larger premises, such as hospitals, it’s worth investing in something much larger.
A vault or safe room is a great place to store hundreds of documents containing much needed medical information. Although we live in a digital age, physical documentation is still necessary in the event of technology failure. In larger buildings, it makes more sense to invest in vaults over hundreds of separate filing cabinets.
Safes for Controlled Drugs
Similarly, you may need a safe place to store a variety of controlled drugs and substances. This is applicable to nursing homes, GP surgeries, pharmacies and hospitals (among many others). Although many different types of medication do not need to be locked away, there are many more that are ‘sought after’.
A medication cabinet or locker is an ideal solution to store controlled drugs in smaller quantities. A medication cabinet will keep controlled substances locked away, and ensure that access is only available to those with permission. Where larger quantities of controlled drugs and substances need to be stored, such as in large pharmaceutical operations, a vault or strong room could be more suitable.

Key Cabinets For Nursing Homes
Although you may require safes to control medications in nursing homes, it’s also essential to have key cabinets for homes where residents have their own lockable rooms. Should they lose their key, or have a fall after locking themselves in, there is an urgent need for access.
Key cabinets allow nurses and other staff to safely store anything from 30 keys to over 600 keys. Giving instant access to those who need it, as quickly and efficiently as possible.
