You’ve invested in the highest quality, most cutting-edge medical equipment available on the market today. This equipment could make all the difference for your patients, while also enhancing your facility’s general efficiency and standards of care. If not operated properly, however, new equipment can spark its fair share of problems. After all, even the best medical equipment will prove of little value if it is misused. Hence, the need for extensive and ongoing training. Below, we offer a few key tips for ensuring that your team uses new medical equipment properly:
Provide a Thorough Overview of the New Equipment
To truly grasp how to operate equipment properly, team members need to possess an extensive understanding of each device’s purpose — and how it functions. This means taking the time to go into detail. The better team members understand the specifics of new equipment, the more likely they are to treat these devices with the care they deserve.
No matter how thoroughly you delve into new devices, questions are bound to arise. Provide plenty of opportunities for asking and answering such questions not only during official training sessions, but also as they come up later on. Address follow-up questions with the full team to ensure that everybody understands the answers.
