Chapter 4: Inventory Management
Inventory management is foundational to patient care. There are various methods to accomplish the function and there may be multiple methods in use throughout the organization. Nursing may use a two-bin system, PAR or auto replenishment, while the procedural areas may use RFID, automated cabinets or PAR. Attention to detail, such as accurate counts, tracking stock-outs, backorders and substitutes, and communicating this information to the clinicians, are imperative to support patient care.
