As you run a medical facility that deals with surgery on a regular basis, you understand the importance of having equipment that is well maintained. Sometimes sensitive equipment will malfunction of become damaged and it will require repairs. That is when you call on the experts.
Of course, you can always send the damaged instruments back to the manufacturer for repairs but there is an apparent problem with this. It costs more than going another route. While you think that the company would repair at a low price, they do not. They mark that up just like they do the instruments themselves.
That is why you should consider using surgical instrument repair companies rather than having the manufacturer do the work. In fact, you will get the same level of expertise in repair that you would there just at a lower rate and probably with a faster turnaround.
This means you can get the equipment back on the surgical floor where it is needed most and where it will do the most good. It is not acceptable to have instruments waiting for repairs when you could easily have them fixed for a nominal fee.
Otherwise, you are looking at buying new equipment more often than you would really need to. Things like endoscopy equipment and harmonic scalpels all need to have maintenance care on a regular basis. These instruments need to function fully in order to be used properly.
As a result, you should contract the services of a good repair company and keep them on the list for regular use. As long as you have the equipment repaired sooner than later, it will last longer so you do not need to buy more as often. Plus, there is the bonus savings of using good repair services over manufacturer repair services.
