Cabinets, Storage, Catheter, Computerized
Definition : Catheter storage cabinets that include a computerized unit to automatically keep track of users and the time of every transaction. These computerized systems include a set of safety features to facilitate orderly control of catheter use and cabinet access; some systems include mechanisms to render the cabinet unusable for unauthorized users. Computer-controlled catheter storage cabinets maintain a database that allows either the display or printing of data logs with information related to catheterization laboratory activities, such as the name of the current user, the history of each catheter use, both withdrawal and return time for each transaction, and costs. Computerized catheter storage cabinets may provide data to hospital information systems and a continuous inventory of catheters.
