On-site supply storage is one of the core competencies of effective supply chain management, and adhering to standards and regulations is an ongoing practice. Whether products are stored in bins or in cardboard boxes, supply chain must ensure all employees follow guidelines for patient safety. In this recorded virtual roundtable education session, a panel of veteran supply chain professionals discuss The Joint Commission Standards and the necessity for risk assessment. The panelists then take questions from the attendees and continue the discussion on best practices.
