Anesthesia Workstation secures controlled substances and reduces manual tracking in the OR

South Jersey Healthcare Regional Medical Center, Vineland, New Jersey

South Jersey Healthcare

In this 250+ bed facility, anesthesia providers were hand-carrying narcotics and using a manual tracking system that was inadequate at capturing patient charges.

Omnicell’s Anesthesia Workstation™ – an automated dispensing cabinet specifically designed for the OR – was installed in ten operating rooms, two endoscopy suites, and an obstetrics unit. The pharmacy and operating room staff collaborated on the implementation.

South Jersey Healthcare achieved these benefits:

  • Medications are more securely stored, improving regulatory compliance
  • More accurate tracking of medication use improved inventory management
  • Charge capture increased to 82%
