What is a Clinical Maintenance:
COMPREHENSIVE EQUIPMENT MANAGEMENT PROGRAM
The present standards and competition for patient, physician, and group business within the medical community has added increasing strain on hospital staff. When hospital staff is burdened with the responsibility of technical equipment maintenance and the management of a program designed to exceed local, state, and federal requirements, the time available to focus on quality patient care is often jeopardized. Present fiscal constraints have created layoffs, cutbacks and yet facilities are most often required to increase the useful life of existing medical equipment. Chicago Biomedical Services Corporation can help! We have developed a program that can effectively manage and control the most complex hospital or clinical environment economically while meeting or exceeding the Environment of Care quality standards. Our Total Hospital Equipment Management Program is designed to focus on every maintenance detail, affording hospital staff time to focus on patient concerns and administration.
