Just ask a nurse is it a Patient bed, Electric, a patient bed, mechanical! they don't care, when they report a bed faulty it is just a bed!! Our asset management system (home grown) will tell the tech if it is mechanical or not. No need for all the variations of beds, ultrasound machines etc, if your database can tell you the difference. One last thing will there be a different code for different software versions?

If you think hiring professionals is expensive, try hiring amateurs!
