Automated Textile Management Systems
ScrubEx, the automated textile management system is designed to control the distribution of scrub suits or work wear within Hospitals or other environments. ScrubEx is ideally suited to hospitals, food manufacture and processing industries.
ScrubEx systems provide rapid access to garments and will allow authorised staff members to access their garments in less than 6 seconds using their existing security badges. The benefit of this rapid dispensing time is that approved staff members are able to use the systems with minimal disruption to their working day, they get what they need, when they need it and without delays due to linen deliveries.
The software that monitors the ScrubEx system will allow inventory to be monitored ‘live’ in real time. All transactions can be viewed via this management software which is communicating continuously with ScrubEx units. This ensures stock levels are at an optimal level and can be viewed by the team loading the systems so that inventory is always available. It also enables a review of items dispensed so that delivery levels can be verified. The systems and the software can ensure that non-approved staff, visitors, relatives or other departments cannot access the departments garments, which will reduce higher usage levels.
The system will also help to enforce infection control policies, as the use of the system encourages positive behaviour when it comes to collecting and returning textiles, while each fresh garment is stored independently within the Dispenser. This is a positive move away from open trolleys in changing rooms and corridors and breaks the ‘help yourself’ mentality.
