All medical practices have a responsibility to their patients, and are obligated to ensure that the equipment they use to diagnose and treat them is functioning properly and delivering accurate measurements. Machinery has dramatically reduced the amount of time it takes to complete a diagnosis. It has also improved accuracy by examining a wider number of factors and reducing the chance of errors being made. For practitioners to continue to take advantage of these benefits and offer the right level of service they must ensure all equipment is well cared for.
Every medical practitioner should have device management policies in place to detail how devices are stored and maintained. The plans will also detail steps that need to be taken to reduce risks and prolong the life cycle of equipment. Different types of device need to be managed in their own ways to ensure they are properly handled, decontaminated and calibrated.
Whatever type of equipment it is, from defibrillators to ECG machines and body mass scales, it is important that it is calibrated correctly and giving accurate readings. Calibration is essential because it could be the difference between giving somebody a clean bill of health and discovering they have a serious medical condition. All devices should be tested regularly and calibrated to ensure they are in line with current regulations.
Medical equipment testing should only be done by trained professionals to ensure the right results. Getting the calibration wrong is just as bad as not testing devices at all; it could even lead to them being damaged. Care needs to be taken to ensure that everything is working within safe parameters and giving the right responses. To get the calibration correct, engineers should use the best equipment available to them.
