Look for a company that doesn’t just repair equipment; look to work with a medical equipment repair company that offers a wide range of services. Look for a company that offers the following services: installation, set-up, repairs, preventative maintenance, testing, replacement parts and new & refurbished equipment sales. Below is a detailed description of what each services entails.
If there is one thing that all medical facilities should do is set up regular maintenance to be performed on medical equipment. It is imperative that you follow the manufacturer’s requirements for maintaining your medical equipment to increase the longevity of each piece. It will also help save your facility money with less equipment downtime, downtime that is scheduled without interrupting scheduled patients and decreases liability issues.
Medical Equipment Installation & Set-Up
It is important to work with a company that also specializes in the set-up and installation of medical equipment. There is a specific way that medical equipment needs to be handled and set up in a medical setting that needs to be done by specialists trained in operating setup.
On Site and Off Site Repair
The company that you choose to work with should provide both on site and off site repair and maintenance services. The company should be willing to travel to your medical facility to make assessments, test and repair both operating & surgical equipment and tools on demand. There should also be a facility in which complicated repairs can be sent that offers the same quality repairs with a quick turnaround response.
Supply and Installation of Replacement Parts, Supplies & Accessories
Working with a company that maintains a large inventory of new and refurbished medical parts for replacement is the best option. You will want to make sure that they also have their own connections to receive parts and supplies that are not in stock on a moment’s notice to avoid downtime.
A company that works to combine all of the functions one may need to retain their medical equipment is preferred over hiring several individual companies to complete the tasks separately. One company providing refurbished and new equipment, maintenance, installation, set-up, repair and parts is a solid choice as it allows them to also track, analyze and make recommendations.
