Preventative maintenance is one of the most important things you can do to ensure that your equipment is running at peak efficiency at all times. After spending the time and money to have equipment installed in your facility, the best way to protect your investment is to perform maintenance and routine inspection before a problem arises. Below are some of the best reasons to keep equipment repair in mind early.
It will save you money.
Routine equipment maintenance is always cheaper than emergency repairs. Replacement parts and service calls are much more affordable when you have time to price-shop, ship in via ground instead of overnight, and can schedule repairs when the equipment is not in use for patient scans. In some cases, preventative maintenance can also identify and fix issues that might otherwise require a total replacement of the equipment. Making sure you are having regular inspections will make your equipment last longer, giving you a better return on your investment and less long-term expenses.
It’s safer for you and your patients.
One of the most important reasons why preventative maintenance is a must-have for any hospital or practice is that it allows you to pinpoint specific issues before they become a problem. Knowing about equipment failure is safer for both your patients and your staff, as untimely malfunctions can drastically reduce the quality of patient care you can provide.
