What is Calibration?
Calibration is the act of ensuring that all occupational health screening equipment is in full working order and is calibrated to a known standard so as to ensure that the reading/result/functionality of the item is accurate at the point of delivery to a patient. It is your responsibility to ensure that your medical equipment is in full working order and maintained through regular medical device testing.
When should you have your equipment calibrated & tested?
You have your medical equipment tested and calibrated when:
- When a specific time period is elapsed, usually annually but in some instances twice yearly.
- You purchase a second-hand instrument from a source other than a company that specialises in calibration and service.
- When a specific amount of usage (or hours used) has elapsed, for instance a defibrillator would need to be tested after it has been used.
- When an instrument has had a shock been dropped or vibration which could have knocked it out of sync. This is especially important in portable devices.
- Whenever observations appear questionable. Common sense comes into play with this – if it looks damaged or like it’s giving off readings, there’s a good chance it could be.
