Color Coding Systems

People tend to identify colors faster than words. If all supply rooms in your facility are set up and color coded the same, it will be much easier for staff who float or ancillary services to find supplies faster and easier – allowing them more time to take care of patients.

A consistent color code system can be developed using different bin colors or different color labels on the front of bins for similar use supplies. Akro-Mils has created this color code chart that can be used in your facility’s supply rooms. You also can modify this chart, or create your own!
