The Webinar Wednesday presentation “Clinical Engineering’s Role in Patient Flow and Safety” held July 31 was eligible for 1 credit from the ACI. The session was sponsored by Universal Medical (UMRi).
In the 60-minute webinar, Craig Diener, senior product manager at Universal Medical, and Craig Snodgrass, national service manager at Universal Medical, discussed patient flow and safety and how the clinical engineering department can affect it. The duo also covered clinical applications and technical support, identifying the system type and configuration, as well as parts identification, shopping and installation.
In a post-webinar survey, attendees were asked “What information did you learn during today’s webinar that you can apply to your role?” The responses included praise for the presentation.
“I don’t work on nuc med but agree it’s important to work with technologist/clinician in diagnosing equipment problems and keeping equipment safe and working properly,” said T. Downs, Biomed.
“It is important for a Biomed to interact favorably with clinical staff,” shared C. Callista, CBET.
“I was enlightened by the fact some parts vendors offer an hour phone tech support with part sales to answer replacement related questions and may also have service manuals and tech tips,” Biomed J. Cozadd said.
“That as a support person you are directly involved in patient care and therefore should take every measure possible to ensure patient safety,” said E. Stone, Principal Clinical Engineer.
“That being a Biomed I can make a difference,” said C. Celver, BMET.
