In the study of factors that affect medical equipment performance, the relationship betweencomplexity and performance, the weight assigned to different characteristics of the medicalequipment were computed to get total score of complexity for each of medical equipment.Complexity score calculated as: 0.4(Score of maintenance and calibration) + 0.3(Score ofincorporated components) + 0.2(Score of operator complexity) + 0.1(Score of auxiliarysupplies and connections) (Remmelzwaal, 1997b).After computing the complexity score, correlation between the complexity and performancewas analyzed.In the study of degree of standardization, calculation of degree of standardization givesvalues between 0 and 1. If the value approaches to 1 it indicates that there is high level ofstandardization and as the value approaches to 0, there is less standardization. Finally, therelationship between standardization and performance was analyzed using correlation.
25CHAPTER FOURRESULTS AND DISCUSSION4.1RESULTS4.1.1. Medical Equipment Management System4.1.1.1. Policies and procedures for the management of medical equipmentAs per the EHRIG, all hospitals should have medical equipment management committee toprepare policies, guidelines and procedures on major components of medical equipmentmanagement. According to the study, only six of the ten hospitals have established medicalequipment management committee responsible to oversee the management of medicalequipment activities in the hospitals.Only 4 of the hospitals have list of medical equipment selected for the hospitals’ use. Noneof them do have specifications of medical equipment used in their hospital. However, therespondent from Black Lion Hospital indicated that they have a plan to use the specificationof medical equipment developed by FMHACA. The FMHACA’s list of medical equipmentand minimum requirement of the medical equipment is almost ready for use.Except Amanuel Mental Specialized Hospital, all of the hospitals don’t have donation,disposal and servicing policies to direct the management of medical equipment in thehospitals. Table 1 indicates summary of availability of medical equipment managementpolicies, procedures and guidelines.
