If both the doctor’s surgery and his maintenance and repair backup and support service team are working in tandem and in a well-organized and co-operative manner, emergency repairs will be few and far between. Regularly scheduled maintenance repair takes care of that. While the doctor focuses on the treatment and care of his patients, his administrative and nursing support staff are able to take care of his surgical instruments.
Like the medical practitioner and the surgical repair technician, the medical support staff team are highly trained, skilled and knowledgeable. There will, however, be those doctors who approach their work in a more hands-on manner. This could mean that they guard their regularly used surgical instruments rather jealously. Some of these instruments are operating from day to day as an extension of their own limbs.
And no matter how well-organized and well-run a surgery is, emergencies are always inevitable. Fortunately, surgical handpiece repair teams are operating along emergency treatment and care hours as well. The moment the distress call is received; all wheels of this industry are set in motion. It is well appreciated by these technicians and their own backup staff that the maintenance and repair of all received surgical instruments needs to be catered for along tightly controlled timelines.
Hours are also extended to well beyond your conventional nine to five operating hours. It can very well happen that during the course of an operation, a surgical instrument can break down. While there will always be backup instruments prepared and ready to be put to use, there will always be a need to bring the doctor’s prized instruments back to the condition they were in before the unexpected breakdown. All the repair processes followed are reassuring to both doctors and their patients.
