  • Why Safe Storage Matters at Your Hospital

    Posted on November 13, 2013 by admin

    Every hospital – from a small community clinic to a major metropolitan hospital – generates documents that are important enough to safeguard from disaster. And with critical medications, patient files and HR records too, safe storage isn’t something your hospital can afford to ignore.

    For productivity, efficiency, patient safety and staff security, safe storage is an important hospital priority. With changing HIPAA legislation, digital and cloud storage debates and prescription drug abuse, issues surrounding hospital storage security are frequently in the headlines. Security safes are more important for hospitals more than ever before.

    To protect your patients and keep your staff safe, plus ensure confidentiality and integrity of critical files, security safes matter for your hospital. We can help you meet your pharmaceutical storage needs, and FireKing meets your file storage needs – both offering the highest quality storage cabinets. Five reasons why secure storage matters for your hospital:

    1. Stay compliant with changing legislation.

    The CSA (Controlled Substances Act) puts drugs and other substances into one of five categories or schedules of drugs with Schedule I requiring the most security and Schedule V the least. The new Safe Prescribing Act of 2013 impacts drug storage, requiring all pharmacies to use a DEA-approved safe for hydrocodone-based painkillers. If passed, under this act, hydrocodone will become a Schedule II substance, requiring your hospital to store these substances in a security-rated safe.

    SafeFile.com, along with NarcoticsSafes.com is your trusted source for safes that meet the Schedule 1 - 5 requirements for drugs and narcotics, plus safes in compliance with these new regulations. Choose from a variety of models rated TL-15 and Class 5 for the storage of these narcotics.

    And HIPAA legislation governs how your hospital stores patients’ critical, confidential records – both hard copies and electronic versions. Keep integrity, availability and confidentiality in mind as you strive for the best in patient service.

    Secure file storage in an accessible, fireproof, lockable storage cabinet prevents information tampering or alteration by unauthorized users.

    2. Security safes add an additional level of security.

    The potential threat of robbery, burglary and internal theft is a true concern for many hospitals. Pharmaceuticals, documents, valuable equipment and more are all at risk. To combat this threat, many hospitals have safety precautions in place, like surveillance, camera and alarm systems. A security safe for your medications and files adds another level of protection. By securing your hospital’s valuable assets, the risk of criminal activity is greatly decreased.

    3. Security safes prevent drug mishandling and promote access control to files.

    When your pharmacy uses security safes, you keep both patient files and prescriptions in the right hands and out of the wrong hands. Security safes let hospital leadership and HR departments determine who does and does not have access, so you can ensure that only permitted staff members can get to these valuable medications and records. Furthermore, security safes keep medications distributed to patients only – and keeps confidential patient information between only the practicioner and patient.

    4. Maintain an organized inventory of medications and files.

    Disorganization of files and medication can lead to mislabeling, mishandling and even dangerous mis-prescribing. Security safes and file storage keep your hospital running efficiently, with the right medications in the right storage areas. Furthermore, organized storage reduces the risk of patients receiving incorrect prescriptions.

    5. Secure storage offers peace of mind – and puts patient care first -- in case of catastrophe.

    No hospital is immune to the threat of natural disasters, including storms, hurricanes, tornadoes, floods and fires. Should the worst occur, your staff can focus on caring for patients, knowing that patient files and pharmaceuticals are stored safely and appropriately. Brand names like FireKing, Securall and Hamilton Safe offer secure storage that’s natural disaster ready.

  • Why Commercial Builders Need Secure Records Storage

    Posted on November 5, 2013 by admin

    Commercial builders of all sizes generate and maintain critical documents and data every day. These include permits, HR materials, blueprints and plans, vendor contracts and agreements of many kinds. All are important enough to safeguard from disaster.

    For productivity, efficiency, safety and security, file storage is a commercial builders priority. To protect your business, plus ensure availability and confidentiality of critical files, security safes matter. FireKing meets your file storage needs efficiently at a smart price. Here are four reasons why commercial builders need secure storage for records and data:

    1.     Secure storage adds an additional level of security for confidential, critical documents. Secure file storage in an accessible, fireproof, lockable storage cabinet prevents information tampering or alteration by unauthorized users.

    The potential threat of robbery, burglary and internal theft is a true concern for any business. To combat this threat, your building site and office may have safety precautions in place, like surveillance, camera and alarm systems. Add an extra layer of security for those critical HR documents, permits and vendor contracts with a security safe for your files adds another level of protection. By securing valuable documents, the risk of confidential information getting into the wrong hands is minimized.

    2. Maintain an organized inventory of company and customer documents and files.

    Between on-site locations and offices, organized files are critical for commercial builders. Permits, forms, HR material, blueprints and other plans, vendor contracts and more: organization is key to smooth business operations. City and state governments require certain documents to be available upon demand. And so disorganization of files can lead to spotty business practices at best, and illegal operations at worst. Know where your important files are – and store them where they belong.

    3. Secure storage offers peace of mind in case of catastrophe.

    Keeping customer and company documents safe from fire, flood, theft or other disaster requires attention before the unthinkable occurs. No business is immune to the threat of natural disasters, including storms, hurricanes, tornadoes, floods and fires. Should the worst occur, your staff can focus on customers and clients, knowing that critical documents are stored safely and appropriately.

    Potential for disaster in the commercial building industry does not exist only on the job site: it’s a threat in your own office as well. Take caution for all your locations. ioSafe hard drives and network storage as well as fireproof file cabinets are the best secure storage that’s natural disaster ready.

    4. Expand and grow your commercial building company with confidence.

    As your company looks to the future for growth opportunities, it’s more important than ever to have quick access to important documents, and to store them securely. Organized file systems allow your staff to find exactly what you need in a quick, efficient time frame. And nothing halts expansion like disaster. Take on new projects with confidence, knowing that a natural disaster won’t hurt the construction timeline or derail progress.
