Definition : Cabinets designed to file medical and/or administrative documents or other media used in a healthcare facility. This furniture typically consists of freestanding or (less frequently) under- or over-the-counter mounted cabinets; there are usually constructed of metal (e.g., steel), wood, plastic, or combinations of them. Filing cabinets are available in many different configurations and sizes. Many cabinets are manufactured to store some particular type of document such as standard letter or legal paper, cards (e.g., medical records, library), or larger documents (e.g., blueprints); others are appropriate to storage a particular store medium (e.g., hanging folders, audio or video cassettes, compact discs). Filing cabinets are used throughout hospitals and other healthcare facilities.
