Archive for the ‘Equipment condition classification’ Category

Use this system to judge the overall condition of all the equipment in your hospital.
Look at every item of equipment and judge its condition based on one of the classifications below. When you have finished add all the numbers together and divide it by the number of items in your list, this will give you an average condition for the equipment in your hospital. Do it every few years, the aim is to get the average number as high as possible by improving your equipment.

All items should be given a number from the list below.

1. Not working, no good for spare parts, scrap only.

2. Not working, not repairable, good for spare parts.

3. Not working, repairable with spares from scrap machines, spares not available from abroad or local suppliers.

4. Not working, repairable with spares from scrap machines, spares available from local supplies.

5. Not working, repairable with spares from scrap machines, spares available from abroad and local supplies.

6. Not working, new spares available on site, and locally.

Total up the numbers recorded and divide by the number of items to arrive at an average condition figure.
This can be done for all items and/or for items of one classification.
This can be repeated a number of years later for a comparative study.
