DV Medical Supply, Inc., provides medical and pharmaceutical supplies to physicians and medical facilities throughout the United States. It focuses on sourcing hard-to-find medications and aims to surpass all existing industry standards. One of the ways DV Medical Supply does this is through stringent inventory management, which ensures its products do not become contaminated or mixed up. Managing medical inventory effectively is a difficult task, but these tips should help.

1. Supplies should be stored in durable containers. This protects them from any external factors that may compromise them. Ideally, these containers should be transparent, so you can conduct visual checks of how much you have of each item in inventory.

2. Invest in software that is capable of reading the many bar code symbols that could potentially be used by hospital item masters. There are over 150 in all.

3. Speak to physicians and nurses about the equipment they prefer. While introducing new stock to inventory will happen over time, you also need to understand the existing needs of your client and stock accordingly.
