[vc_toggle title=”What is Medical Device Equipment Calibration?”]Seal Calibration Ltd completes thousands of medical device equipment calibrations every week. The calibration is ensuring that the device is fully functioning and accurate at the point of delivery to a patient within the manufacturer’s parameters. It is vital that the calibrations are traceable to a national standard such as UKAS (United Kingdom Accreditation Service). Typically Seal Calibration conducts annual calibrations in healthcare settings such as Health Centres, GP Surgeries and Pharmacies with consultation rooms.[/vc_toggle][vc_toggle title=”Why is calibration important in GP Surgeries?”]Essentially the health of all patients depends on the accuracy of your medical equipment. With many clinical devices such as Thermometers, Pulse Oximeters, Blood Pressure Monitors and more being used to prescribe from daily, making sure that they are fully tested and calibrated is legally and medically required for compliance and professional competence.[/vc_toggle][vc_toggle title=”How often should you calibrate your medical equipment?”]At GP Surgeries, Healthcentres and other establishments governed by CQC it is an industry expectation that medical equipment is calibrated at annual intervals. Some medical equipment may require calibration prior to use but this is subject to individual manufacturers instructions. All equipment should be of medical grade and if broken, dropped or a practitioner is unsure of the accuracy of any device this should be decommissioned until recalibrated to ensure accuracy. CQC will inspect annual recording of calibrations having taken place. You can find more information here on the CQC website or one of our team will be happy to advise if you have further questions.[/vc_toggle]
