INVENTORY OF SUPPLIES AND EQUIPMENT
a. An inventory of sterile supplies should be performed daily. The main purpose
of this inventory is to ensure that there are enough sterile supplies for CMS to provide
the using units as they need them. Stock levels are established by the Chief of CMS,
which serve as the guideline in determining requirements for supplies in CMS. The
inventory is checked against the established stock level for each item of supply.
(1) The inventory of sterile supplies should be made at a preestablished
time each day. The recommended time is after the first load of requests from using
units has been filled. It may be necessary to inventory several times during a 24-hour
period when requirements are heavy.
(2) An inventory of unsterile and bulk supplies should be done on a weekly
or semi-weekly basis depending upon the volume of work, storage space available
within the CMS, and the time it usually takes to receive supplies from the
Logistics/Supply and Service Division.
