Why ASC's Need Annual Electrical Safety Inspections
Having your equipment in proper working order and correctly grounded is essential for your facility’s protection, not only financially, but to protect your reputation and patients.
The Biggest benefit to this low cost annual service is the visual inspection of the device by one of KenMed's experienced Biomed engineers. Feedback from this hands-on test can give an early warning that a piece of equipment is aging or headed towards issues.
If you have equipment on a lease or loan program, be sure to keep a regular inspection log. While you may not own the equipment, having faulty apparatus is a reflection on you.
