A time when you have to face or get a patient stabilized and be checked into an emergency room, and the last problem you should be thinking as an emergency medical technician is dealing with a faulty equipment. Try imagining yourself being rushed to the hospital and while you are on an ambulance stretcher made out of sub-standard aluminum metal. A failure of this piece of equipment either while transporting the patient to the ambulance or perhaps when moving the patient at the emergency room could prove fatal to the patient. A durable medical equipment serves as the bedrock supply of any skilled medical professional and emergency medical technician. Because of that all medical administrators makes sure that all of their medical equipment is from a trusted medical equipment manufacturer. With a single mistake in the purchase of even the simplest medical tools or equipment could bring havoc or disaster to their patient.
It is not just the victims of accidents that must completely rely on durable medical equipment, even any of the most routine medical procedure can quickly become serious if the equipment involve are of low quality. With needles that aren’t sterile, cracked tubing and lack of equipment monitoring could all end up in a disaster, and for that very reason the administrators should opt only a reputable manufacturer or supplier. But even the keenest inspection on these medical equipment there will always those inadequate ones that slips through. Because of that doctors and nurses should always be cautious in administering these medical tools and equipment to their patients.
The auction of medical equipment is one of the best way that an organization can save money and through it they can be sure that their medical equipment came from a reputable manufacturer and all of their items conform to all regulations and standards that governs the supply of medical equipment. And the demand for this type of equipment continually grows and there have been cases of unscrupulous dealers who are exploiting this demand and supplying their clients with sub-standards items which in fact endangers not only the lives of the patient but also the medical professional and the medical organization.
These people could always place a limit on themselves that they will only purchase medical equipment to trusted manufactures who has been supplying medical equipment to other hospitals and medical organization. Now legal action not just only damages monetarily the institution but also it greatly damages their reputation in medical practices if they have been proven to be using faulty equipment in their institution/organization or in their medical practices.
