'How to Manage' Series for Healthcare Technology. Guide 4: How to Operate Your Healthcare Technology Effectively and Safely

Abstract

The titles in this Series are designed to contribute to improved healthcare technology management in the health sectors of developing countries, although they may also be relevant to emerging economies, and other types of country. They are are aimed at people who work for, or assist, health service provider organizations in developing countries. Though targeted primarily at those working in health facilities or within the decentralized health authorities, many of the principles will also apply to staff in other organizations (for example, those managing health equipment in the Ministry of Works, private maintenance workshops, and head offices).

This Guide outlines a number of practical steps for:

  • equipment operation
  • safety
  • care of equipment
  • disposal of equipment
  • supplies management

These will help you to use and look after your equipment without coming to harm, and to continue to deliver health services to patients.
