2022-11-09 Galbino

Hospitals need to be prepared for anything that might come through the doors. That’s why keeping key pieces of medical equipment on-hand at all times are so crucial to providing complete care.

In order to provide comprehensive treatment for patients, there is a standard set of equipment that all hospitals should have ready. This list of medical equipment can often be refurbished as well as new, allowing hospitals to afford to carry reserves for these key pieces.

Essentially, medical equipment for a new facility can fall under the following categories:

Diagnostic hospital equipment – comprising primarily examination, laboratory testing, imaging, and vital sign monitoring equipment.

Hospital procedural equipment – As the name suggests, includes all equipment such as surgical appliances, sterilization equipment, suction machines, and related equipment, that is required by the hospital to provide care to the patient. The majority of the investment might happen in this category and can also dictate the pricing for procedures as well as long-term maintenance investments.

Hospital treatment equipment – This equipment encompasses all the devices required to restore health, fight off infection, and treat the patient. These can include I.V. delivery systems, pulmonary and cardiac support, and nutritional delivery systems.

Patient care needs equipment – While these are not directly related to the treatment of the patient and their medical condition, can have a major impact on the patient experience. These include items that offer comfort to the patient, aftercare support, etc.

Consumables & Supplies –These include all the recurring expenses towards disposable/reusable items that are required across procedures and for the running of the hospitals. Timeline delivery, stock-keeping, and inventory tracking are pivotal to ensuring that the medical facility does not run into any issues that can impact the customer experience and delivery of patient care.

How to Successfully Plan for Medical Equipment Implementation?

One of the major difficulties involved in construction projects is the inability to keep to a schedule. With a medical equipment implementation plan in place, hospital administration and owners need not worry about equipment delivery. Planners in charge of the project will ensure that everything runs smoothly without causing any further disruptions. This means medical equipment planners will work hand in hand with equipment vendors to make certain that all installations are well coordinated. Furthermore, they will ensure that no overlapping between installations will occur.
