Patients expect quality care during any visit to the doctor. They expect to be treated by medical professionals with the most up-to-date, well-maintained equipment available. It’s important for medical facilities to prioritize equipment maintenance, repair, and replacements so that patients continue to receive the best possible care.
PM Schedules, Medical Equipment, and Patient Care
Equipment preventative maintenance schedules, also known as PM schedules, are designed to help ensure that equipment and tools receive the care they need before they begin to malfunction or fail. Paying close attention to the schedules helps in reducing the number of equipment malfunctions during routine care of patients by catching issues before they occur.
That’s why the team at Sage Services is proud to offer top quality patient cables to healthcare providers. Our medical equipment and replacement parts are reliable and reasonably priced, which means you won’t have to continue using equipment well past its replacement time. Sage Services aims to prevent liability and patient care issues by providing facilities with better, more reliable medical equipment.
The E01-30M (989803125841, M1943AL) is a patient cable designed to measure how much oxygen is in the patient’s blood. One side is attached to the patient’s finger while the other end sends the signal to the monitor to show the nurses and doctors what their oxygen level is. This cable is an important part of monitoring patient vitals, so it is paramount that it operates as expected, every time.
Even by choosing the best possible equipment for your facilities, maintaining a consistent, thorough preventative maintenance schedule ensures your equipment continues to perform as expected.
Picking a Preventative Maintenance Company
Picking a company for preventative maintenance on medical equipment is key to providing quality healthcare. There are few things to keep in mind when picking the best organization for your needs:
What is their insurance policy on general liability? You need a company that is backed by an insurance policy in case of liability issues.
Secondly, does the company provide test documentation for each PM? Providing documentation and keeping a record of each PM test on medical equipment provides an idea of when the equipment was last checked and when it will need to be checked in the future.
The company you choose should be able to stay organized when it comes to the documentation of PM checks because doing so will help cover you using faulty or old equipment while caring for your patients.
