As most equipment problems are either simple or user-related it is the aim that the better care and regular maintenance enabled by this manual will have a significant positive effect on the delivery of healthcare. The maintenance tasks are placed in daily and weekly checklists. This will help in planning time for them to be carried out. In most cases, for daily tasks the beginning of the working day will be best, but any time will suit as long as the job is done. For weekly tasks, it may be easier to allocate a different day for each type of equipment, to spread the load through the week. A simple timetable with the person responsible can be used as a reminder.Measuring patient weight is an important part of monitoring health as well as calculating drug and radiation doses. It is therefore vital that scales continue to operate accurately. They can be used for all ages of patient and therefore vary in the range of weights that are measured. They can be arranged for patients to stand on, or can be set up for weighing wheelchair bound patients. For infants, the patient can be suspended in a sling below the scale or placed in a weighing cot on top of the scale.
