A key problem for many hospitals is missing equipment, typically items include:
- Mattresses and covers
- Syringe and intravenous poles
- Syringe drivers
- ECG monitors
- Medical cabinet keys
- Vulnerable patients
- Blood pressure monitors
- Ultrasound scanners
- Infusion pumps
Once an item goes missing, it can take hours even days to locate missing assets. Searching for missing equipment not only wastes valuable time, it costs money - unnecessary hire cost, avoidable equipment re-purchases and ultimately patient care is impaired.
