Cubicle refrigerator Temperature

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I'm going to get a cubicle refrigerator for my work (I've got my meds and I want to keep my meds in the cube).

Last time I had a cubicle refrigurator, it didn't go down past 42 - 44 degrees Fahrenheit - on three different thermometers (on the lowest shelf).

What temperate should a thermometer be in the refrigerator?

Thanks!

For a normal (small) ward fridge for storing meds....

Probably 40° Fahrenheit (around 4° Celsius) would be good. You want to check the specific medicines to see what the manufacturer suggests for storage. Most are to be kept in a "cool and dry" space, so 40° would be more than sufficient for that.

The latest flu shots are kept at that temp.

The "ideal" refrigerator temp range is 35F - 38F (1.7C - 3.3C). Anything over 40F will not safely inhibit bacterial grown. So, 48F is way, way too high.

I was wondering about that. I stored meds, but I take 8 - 10 a day. Do you have any cubicles you would recommend?

Chef BDL,

For "medication" 40 is good (I had meds on the brain when I posted as I am sure you realized) , but as you said 35- 38F is "ideal".


Merci pour cet éclaircissement! :)

Meds on the brain.

You had meds on the brain? That's what I have.

Actually, I'm going to keep foods, meds, and supplements in the cube, so I guess I'll get in for foods (protein - i.e., 38 - 40 degrees).
