We had label designed, with an input from the ward staff, that should be attached to every piece of equipment that is sent to our dept'..hhmmm.
The layout and wording of this label was kept as simple as posssible..to prevent confusion..ahh.
Information that we require is; date/time, asset no., location, contact name/tel, fault description, accesserories and also nature of contamination/method of decontamination..simple. In fact, some may call the design 'idiot proof'.
What else can one do. Perhaps we should have used a bigger font for the words. We even had a 'how to complete this label' form printed and laminated for each ward/area.
All I can say is, it don't blo#dy work!!
