Reducing Liability through Patient Safety

Reducing Liability through Patient Safety

A patient gets injured during a procedure at a medical facility. It turns out that the medical equipment had not been inspected to ensure that it’s up to standards. The facility is now facing a lawsuit claiming that they are liable for the injury. This is a situation that you never want to face and one that is completely preventable.

Be proactive, not reactive. That’s the key when it comes to medical equipment inspections.

Accreditation is a step towards fulfilling the requirement in Article 28 and Title 10 from the New York State Department of Health and the new requirements for NY office-based surgery.

Good news – a biomedical inspection by the professionals at Healthcare Engineering Service Solutions fulfills these requirements and more:

  • Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations (JCAHO)
  • National Fire Protection Agency (NFPA)
  • ECRI Institute
  • Association for the Advancement of Medical Instruments (AAMI)

You’ll also possibly reduce liability insurance costs. By beefing up your risk management efforts, you may get better access to lower cost liability insurance coverage.
