IMA Supply Cabinet
- The supply cabinet contains miscellaneous diabetic testing supplies, urgent medications, pill boxes, and overflow PDAP medications that could not fit in the PDAP boxes.
- They are located on CAM 6 West outside office D6-127 in the Visiting Doctors corridor. The cabinet is tall with drawers, dark gray and labelled "EHHOP". It is not locked.
- It is easiest to access by using the back service elevator from IMA/EHHOP to the 6th floor (press 6R for "rear" to access the floor). Instructions on finding the cabinet are here.
IMA Supply Closet
- The supply closet contains miscellaneous supplies for general clinic use and insulin syringes, but not medications.
- It is located in IMA Firm B (leave EHHOP, cross past the elevators to the other half of the building, go to the back hallway).
- Look for room D7-148.
- If the room is locked, you'll need one of the staff in IMA Firm B to help you.
Diabetic Testing Supplies:
Testing blood glucose requires a lot of supplies, including: lancets, test strips, syringes, sharps containers, alcohol swabs. There are also forms for diabetes glucose logs, blood pressure logs, healthy plate, medication list, etc. We supply all of these to our patients. Below are a few places they might be located:
- The first place to look for diabetic testing supplies are the PDAP boxes by the CMs.
- The second place to look is in the EHHOP storage lockers.
- The third place to look is in the IMA overflow supply cabinet.
If you cannot locate the needed supplies in any of these locations please call or email James Blum (301-509-7426) to confirm that we are out of supplies. Also, take down the patient's name, phone number, supplies needed, and supplies at home. We will arrange for them to pick up supplies during the week.
Please only distribute diabetes supplies to patients listed in the weekly call sheet under the “Pharmacy” tab. If the patient is not on that tab, please speak with the TS prior to distributing any supplies.
Only one box (100 strips) or two boxes (50 strips each) of diabetes test strips should be distributed at most every three months to patients. You can check when a patient last received and is next due for a box here. If the patient tests more than once a day, they can receive 200 strips per 3 months.
Please tell the CMs any time a supply item is distributed.
