On more than one occation, when in a hurry, I have broken a few glass medication ampules. The all glass amps can be broken fairly easy when opening a storage or omnicell drawer as they tend to roll around.
In order to reduce the risk of broken glass and save the expense of wasted medications, I designed a couple varieties of organizers to prevent these issues in the future.
Here are the CAD designs that I conceived of:
The first desgn was intended mostly for lidocaine amps in the anesthesia carts while the second was intended for displaying the amps more clearly in the omnicell.
Here are the 3D Prints and their implementations:
I have yet to break an amp since implementing this organizers. One of the pharmacy techs commented that they thought the main pharmacy had purchased these from a supplier rather than a 3D printed item that I had made on the fly.
