“Nurses were very kind. Excellent service – everything at the Meadowlands Hospital was perfect. Many thanks.”
— Mirna C., Meadowlands Hospital Ambulatory Services Patient, November 2017
“The morning of my surgery, we were properly greeted and waited on – we were made very comfortable. My son commented on how clean the hospital was…I would like to take this time to commend, bless and praise the anesthesiologist Shanon Kleinman who inserted my line. I am petrified of needles – only once in my life did I have a pleasant IV experience now I have a second positive experience! Dr. Kleinman had the most peaceful disposition and manner about him! His bedside manner and expertise are beyond compare! I know that Dr. Vagmin Vora and the staff were doing their jobs but we were made to feel as if we were special! Everybody made my surgery personal! I am very, very pleased with the care and attention I received during my stay at the Meadowlands Hospital – the staff over extended themselves in all ways. They thought of everything and made sure we did too!”
— Carmen D., Meadowlands Hospital Ambulatory Services Patient, October 2017
“I was in your hospital two times and both visits were very good experiences!”
— Ann S., Meadowlands Hospital HCAHPS/3West Patient, October 2017
Most patients, when they think of a trip to a hospital for any reason, consider the location, doctors, nursing, and reputation. What most people do not realize is how important the Storeroom is in a hospital. Our hospital gets daily deliveries to insure our inventory doesn't run out. As a result, we have staff here by 6am, Monday through Friday to prepare the deliveries to the requesting departments in timely manner. When a department requires a rush delivery, our Storeroom personnel respond immediately and are always courteous and professional. Since the storage area is so important, it requires extreme organization and cleanliness. Shipments are unpacked and put in their specified areas right away. Taking an inventory count is a daily process, as well as rotation of the stock. Expiration dates are checked monthly and rotated. Rarely, when any of our supplies expire, we set it aside for donation. We do, however, make it our goal to never order more than we need. Our goal is to eliminate any/all waste.
The integrity of each item is also critical. The staff knows how to check the packaging for any breaks in the sterility of the items. Currently, we are working to get the Storeroom inventory on a bar code/computer based system. This will track and trend productivity and efficiency for inventory and ordering.
The mailroom works in close contact with the Storeroom. They are always ready to handle Storeroom returns. In addition, they handle our interoffice mail. The Storeroom is as important as any other department at Meadowlands Hospital and we work very hard to keep things running smoothly, effectively and in a timely manner. We are very proud and we continue to find new ways to improve.
