Hospital Nurses: Best Place for Blanket Warmer?

I'm a librarian asking this question on behalf of our surgical services folks.

If you could design your perioperative unit, where would you put the blanket warmers? What works well for you? What hasn't worked well at all?

Thank you so much to anyone who takes the time to respond.

We have blanket warmers in each subroom, so basically one per every two ORs. Very convenient because you don’t have to go far at all

Thank you to Rose_Queen for responding. Anyone else? I know this is a pretty niche question. ?

Responding late here, but my advice is to place it next to a clean laundry cart so when a warm blanket is taken out, a replacement blanket can be added to the warmer.
