ONZE LIEVE VROUW HOSPITAL AALST, BELGIUM

OLV Hospital in Aalst has experienced a period of rapid expansion over recent years and as a result faced a lack of storage space, especially for the storage of medical equipment.

The solution
Through the installation of a mobile storage system, Bruynzeel was able to double the hospital’s existing storage capacity. The storage system chosen came with shelves and drawers and baskets for storing small objects, plus modular baskets, as standard. In addition, Bruynzeel created special custom-designed hanging frames in which the modular baskets with heavier goods can be placed. Ergonomics and safety were paramount for OLV and as a result the hospital chose an electronic mobile storage system.

“I was immediately convinced that we could increase our storage capacity dramatically thanks to this mobile shelving system.”

Peter Van Houdenhove – Head nurse in intensive care

“The mobile shelving system meets the ergonomic and safety aspects which are important issues in our hospital.”

Jan De Veylder – Program Manager at the operating theatres
