Equipment Recall

Recalls occur when a medical device is found to be defective or to pose a health risk. A recall may involve a correction to the product or result in its removal from service. The ensuing workload from device recalls can disrupt a hospital’s workflow and drastically interfere with patient care.

TeleTracking RTLS minimizes the hazards associated with recalls. By understanding where all equipment is in real-time, clinical engineers can easily locate the faulty equipment, repair it or remove it from service, and quickly find a replacement for it.

TeleTracking RTLS Benefits:

  • Speed recall response times
  • Maintain patient safety during the recall
  • Enhance staff efficiency in locating recalled equipment and removing it or replacing it
