As you embark on the new veterinary clinic setup process, your focus may be on making everything bigger and better. While this is a noble aim, oftentimes what benefits you, your practice, and your patients more is focusing on efficiency. As you approach the early stages of the new veterinary clinic setup process, here are a few ideas to ensure the efficiency of your facility moving forward:
- Look into mobile equipment. While this does not necessarily mean you will move your equipment out of your clinic, it simply means you can move it from room to room. For instance, you may opt for a mobile veterinary anesthesia unit instead of one affixed to the treatment room.
- Make treatment rooms smaller. Having larger treatment rooms doesn’t necessarily enhance the quality of care you provide your patients. In fact, you may be amazed at all the medical equipment you can fit in a small space if you arrange it correctly.
- Eliminate certain functions. Changes in the veterinary industry have made certain practices unnecessary or outdated. Think about which functions you can eliminate to fully streamline your operations and save valuable space at your clinic.
- Combine the functions of your treatment rooms. Instead of only performing one procedure in one room and others in another, see what you can do to combine your ability to perform all or most of your procedures in just one or two rooms.
