The Importance of Instructions For Use

Wednesday, May 08, 2024 10:00 AM - 10:45 AM   iCalendar Eastern Standard Time

The use of medical equipment, supplies and devices is an essential part of providing medical care. However, the safe use, cleaning/disinfection and maintenance of these resources requires organizations to reference the manufacturer’s instructions for use. Accrediting organizations have placed greater attention on organizations in the use of these references and will cite deficiencies when they are not used. This educational webinar will provide information on how manufacturer’s instructions for use support safe care and how organizations can ensure they are compliant with regulations that govern their use.
