Don't Lose that FDA Form!
We get calls every week from past and current customers in a panic over paperwork. A Department of Health inspector has dropped in, and wants to see a copies of the 2579 form for the c-arm and the bone densitometer. A state Department of Revenue auditor is asking who paid the sales tax on the refurbished CT scanner the facility leased three years ago. Or you’ve finally found a serious buyer for the MRI you’re replacing, but before she finalizes the purchase, she wants copies of the software license codes, user passwords, and operator manuals.
What to keep and where to keep it – solving that (not-so-simple) problem about the new or refurbished diagnostic imaging equipment installed in your facility can save you lots of time, headaches – and money – in the future.
We know that it’s all too easy to get busy scanning patients – and garnering profits – with that newly-installed C-Arm or Rad Room. Paperwork, and filing it in the right places, is the least of your worries. But if you file the important stuff so you (or whoever might be in your job a few years from now) can find it when you need it, you’ll thank your busy self in the future.
