What rubbish. You have all the usage figures you need. Ward requests a pump for a patient for a day. Pump delivered, therefore pump in use. If you want to get pedantic you don't need RFID or similar to record a unit is actually in use, I doubt that any of these systems could do that anyway, not least of which is because you would be modifying the equipment to allow such add on systems to work, you could just record the hours used from the service menu. Most infusion pumps for instance record this.
