Medical Equipment Maintenance: User Maintenance Checklist Operating Theatre and Delivery Tables Mobile App
The Medical Equipment Maintenance: User Maintenance Checklist Operating Theatre and Delivery Tables mobile app is intended to be a guide for the medical equipment user to carry out basic maintenance tasks.
How does it work?
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. Tables are required to hold the patient in a position comfortable both for themselves and for medical staff during procedures. They can include dedicated supports for head, arms and legs and often have movable sections to position the patient appropriately. They are made both with wheels and on static platforms and can have movements powered by electric motors, hydraulics or simply manual effort. They can be found in emergency departments, operating theatres and delivery suites.
