Medical Equipment Repairs FAQs
Any medical facility is likely to have an unexpected equipment failure at some point. Repairs can generally be done on any equipment that is still supported by the manufacturer. Repairing equipment is sometimes called “reactive maintenance” – it’s what happens when you run equipment until the point of failure.
If the failure is not catastrophic, it may only require the repair or replacement of a single component to bring it back into working condition. A catastrophic failure may be something that results in all the components being affected, such as storm or fire damage. In those circumstances, it is not advisable to repair the equipment as the risk to patient safety is too great.
Luckily, catastrophic failures are rare, and in many cases, you’ll be able to rely on insurance to help cover those costs. If you encounter any unexpected equipment failure that doesn’t quite fall into the catastrophic category, contact us to evaluate it. We can source parts and perform on-site repairs to get your equipment working properly again.
Equipment repairs may fall into one or more of these categories:
- Internal circuit board replacements (DC-power repairs)
- External mains power/power-supply repairs (AC-power repairs)
- User interface repairs (LCD screens, touch screens, control boards)
- Applicator repairs (handpieces, surgical instruments, etc.)
- Cosmetic repairs (such as damaged plastic housings)
Biomedics can repair many types of equipment, relying on our connections with manufacturers to provide you with the right replacement parts and repairs performed to the manufacturer’s recommendations. Contact us to find a solution if you’re looking for assistance to repair a device.
Most replacement parts come from the manufacturer with a 1 to 3-year factory warranty. With the proper routine preventive maintenance, you should expect the repairs to last the lifetime of your equipment.
For cosmetic repairs and other types of repairs where new parts aren’t necessary to complete the job, it’s more difficult to predict how long such repairs will last. Again, the best bet is to perform routine preventive maintenance to ensure you get the best lifespan out of your equipment.
The near-term benefit of repairing your equipment is that your organisation will save money in lieu of purchasing new equipment. Maintaining your medical equipment for as long as possible also helps to reduce our global waste – which benefits the environment. Additionally, repairing your equipment makes more medical equipment available to more patients, which overall helps to improve public health.
Most likely, you will need to have a professional service scrap the equipment. Because of the content of certain materials in the electronics that make up most medical equipment, there are special considerations for disposing of the equipment, and it cannot be recycled in a typical recycling facility or sent to a standard waste landfill. If you end up in such a situation with equipment that cannot be repaired, contact us for assistance with the proper disposal.
