This is exactly the kind of nightmare scenario that could happen at your hospital today if you fail to keep up with regular equipment inspections. And the problem doesn’t just apply to defibrillators.
Every process and piece of medical equipment has to work first time, or it’s your patients’ lives at stake and your reputation on the line.
The only way you can avoid blame is by proving everything has been checked on schedule. But keeping track of inspections is hard with a paper-based system, particularly in today’s cash-strapped and resource-needy healthcare environment.
Your staff have better things to do than spend their day checking whether all equipment inspections are up to date.
That’s why healthcare organisations like yours are moving to Papertrail, a simple yet powerful patient safety platform that will help you reduce the risk you face.
Improve access to real-time information on equipment inspection status, to reduce your risk and your exposure to costly fines.
Reduce theatre downtimes and costs arising from faulty equipment and cut your reliance on paper-based records.
Significantly improve your ability to report accurately against board and government targets and objectives.
Free up medical staff by doing away with the need to manually keep track of equipment inspections.
Demonstrate compliance with equipment inspection routines, to help with post-incident investigations.
Guard against reputational damage from accidents caused by poor maintenance.
“Papertrail has helped our department significantly improve the processes around risk, compliance, asset control and critical information. All of this is contributing to patient safety while reducing costs through improved efficiency.”
