BRIDGEPORT, Conn., Feb. 1 /PRNewswire/ -- Modern Plastics custom designs and manufactures LEXAN* "Universal Precaution Stations

(Infection Control Stations)" and "Narcotic Lock Boxes" for hospitals, nursing homes and other patient-care facilities.  

LEXAN* Universal Precaution Stations are typically installed in all patient care areas, outside patient rooms, hospital

hallways and intensive care areas. They are useful in hospitals, rehabilitation centers, long-term care facilities, clinics, doctor offices, and anywhere that OSHA standards of universal precautions must be maintained. The stations neatly organize and make available an array of isolation supplies in one convenient location. These can include such items as isolation gowns, various sizes of gloves, respiratory masks, head covers, foot covers and protective eye wear.

Mandated lockable narcotic boxes are manufactured from the same LEXAN* polycarbonate material. These boxes have been used in the ER, OR, ICU and PACU areas where multiple dosing of narcotics substances from one syringe or vial is necessary. These boxes provide safe and secure storage at bedside areas between individual doses.

Customers are able to choose from existing designs or design their own precaution stations to meet their needs, including different sizes, designs, colors, and material selection with no additional design or engineering costs. Modern Plastics offers consultations with a critical care experienced registered nurse and a plastic fabrication specialist to best understand and meet your needs.

"Modern Plastics manufactures and designs quality custom fabricated plastic items for the healthcare industry," said Bing J. Carbone, President of Modern Plastics. He added, "Our hospital Universal Precaution Stations and Narcotic Lock Boxes are manufactured from tough, break-resistant LEXAN* polycarbonate sheet and are designed to hold up under the most extreme conditions." Modern Plastics' Universal Precaution Stations and Narcotic Lock Boxes have been installed at world-renowned hospitals all across the United States in cities such as Boston, MA; New Haven, CT; and Philadelphia, PA.

Modern Plastics is offering a single "FREE" Universal Precaution Station or Narcotic Lock Box prototype that is custom designed to individual requirements, for hands-on evaluation.

Modern Plastics also offers MICROBAN® antimicrobial Lucite® acrylic from which the Universal Precaution Stations and Narcotic Lock Boxes can be fabricated from.
