Medical equipment management ensures that equipment is appropriate for the needs of the clinical service, functions effectively and safely, and represents value for money. It extends far beyond the repair and maintenance function to clinical governance and asset management. Offering insight into the problems and challenges of managing medical equipment within a healthcare system, this book helps readers develop an understanding of the business process and increase awareness of how maintenance of equipment is influenced by its design. It details the equipment management process: demonstration of need, funding, procurement, acceptance testing, asset register maintenance, user training and support, routine and breakdown maintenance, risk management, disinfection, incident reporting, device modifications and trials, and condemning and safe disposal of equipment.
