Course Overview

Typically, endoscope repairs are related to incorrect handling and reprocessing techniques. Preventative maintenance coupled with careful handling and proper use is the best ways to prevent damage, deterioration, patient injury and equipment failure and to extend the lives of instruments. Proper care and handling and reprocessing techniques, knowledge of repair cause and frequency, tracking and trending of endoscope damages and OEM repairs can minimize the costs associated with your endoscope investment. An effective repair reduction program will help to reduce repair cost and increase the longevity and performance of your endoscope inventory.
