Equipment Management: Getting Back to Basics
Your equipment is one of your biggest assets, and
you should treat it that way, particularly now,
given supply chain issues, increased focus on
infection control, and the need to demonstrate
expertise and professionalism to patients,
caregivers and referral partners.
Sandy Canally, RN, the founder and CEO of accrediting
organization The Compliance Team, met with HMEB to
talk about how equipment management fits into
standards compliance and overall business success. She
explains what goes into effective equipment
management practices; how the COVID-19 public health
emergency impacted equipment management; and how
those lessons will pay dividends well after the end of the
public health emergency.
