Action (What Did You Do?) 1-2 Sentences
Numerical values were added to each cart used to house the test tubes used, and each value reflects the urgency of
use for the tubes (i.e. the test tubes that are going to expire first are placed on the cart labelled #1 while the test
tubes that are going to expire last are stocked on cart #5). Instead of stocking loose tubes daily (and mixing up
dates) the test tubes are stocked once a week by placing a full case onto the respective cart.
Results (How is Everyone Better Off?) 1-2 Sentences
