Good afternoon all,

I'm just putting together some information on an E-shot to send out regarding testing of medical equipment e.g ECG's, syringe drivers etc but would it be better to get this information to each E.B.M.E department, estates or both? I'm just unsure which department the responsibility of organising would be with.

Any advice would be appreciated think

Here are a few for starters:

Clinical Engineering
Biomedical Engineering
Bioengineering
Medical Physics
Medical Engineering
MEMS
MEMO
Medical Electronics
EBME
Estates
Works
Facilities


I think each hospital has its own name for the department that looks after medical equipment.

Why not simply publish your "E-shot" right here? think

That way I expect there are many who could advise whether you would be wasting everyone's time (including your own) - or not, as the case may be.

As you seem to be unclear about the difference between "EBME" and "Estates" ... I must admit that I have my doubts.

Hi Geoff,

I didn't think you were allowed to advertise your service on here directly? think

I guess that all depends on who you are, and what you're trying to do. whistle


If you don't inspect ... don't expect.

Hi Geoff,

Sorry I forgot to mention earlier that I'm not an engineer and I am office based as an account manager/development so you will have to forgive my ignorance if my question regarding departments seemed daft blush

( I was a little confused as I deal directly with an estates manager for the hospitals autoclaves, compressors etc and then the EBME department directly at a different hospital for the same type of equipment? ) shrug

I've managed to catch one of our engineers earlier who cleared this up for me now by the way but thanks for everyones input. smile

May I suggest that you place a clue about who you work for in your Profile (if only in generic terms)?

Better still, why not add a link to your website (homepage) there? think

It saves all this pussy-footing around, when we know who it is we are responding to.

@Robert: how could you forget:-

Electro-medical

and, er:- MEMU!

Bradley,
In general the medical equipment in contact with the patient is looked after by a specialist department (knopwn by many names)and the backroom stuff such as autoclaves is an Estates responsibility.
Just to confuse things the medical equipment section might be part of the Estates department.
And there is always a grey area which can vary from hospital to hospital - beds and hoists are a classic example.
Robert

Do we start another set of postings "What is your department called?"?
