Unit of Measure
What is a Unit of Measure item?
An item that can be purchased in varying packaged quantities such as an ‘Each’, ‘Box’ or ‘Case’. Each Unit of Measure associated with the item offers a different amount of product, yet all sizes now have the same Item Number.
For example, many Intermittent Catheter items have two Units of Measure: an ‘Each’, and a ‘Box. The ‘Each’ contains 1 catheter and the ‘Box’ contains 30 catheters.
How will I know if an item is available in multiple Units of Measure?
Items with multiple Units of Measure are denoted by the ‘UM’ label on the review order page, the product search results page, and the product detail page when 2 or more Units of Measure are offered for that item.
Which Units of Measure are available to order by at Supreme Medical?
Each, Box, Pack, Case – however you need it, we are usually able to accommodate! If you order a product by the ‘each’, you request, acknowledge and agree that product literature such as product inserts, instructions for use, stand alone labeling and original manufacturer boxes may not be included, and that you have educated your patient on such product and the absence of such information or materials will not compromise the patients ability to use the product.
How do I change a Unit of Measure in the Shopping Cart?
You can modify the Unit of Measure on any items added to the Shopping Cart before checking out. Visually, this will be indicated by a drop down menu in the ‘UM’ column. Simply click the drop down menu to make a new selection for the unit of measure you prefer. After making a selection, click ‘UPDATE ORDER QTYS’ to save and return to the shopping cart.
Note: If an item does not display any additional Units of Measure when you click the drop down menu, it is available in only one Unit of Measure and no additional options will be present in the ‘UM’ column.
Product Recalls will be communicated to all customers via our online message center on Remotenet (our B2B portal). For assistance with any current product recalls, please contact your sales consultant at 1-800-461-1370.
