Please reach out with any questions!
This is your friendly PSA to PLEASE clean the ultrasound probes and machines after every use!
This reduces the wear and tear of these $15,000 probes, and keeps our patients safe from the spread of iatrogenic infectious diseases. The machines also cost $70,000 each… which costs more than the Tesla I don’t own. So please wipe the machine down if there is any concern for soil by bodily fluids/gel etc!
When finished using the ultrasound, please remember to:
For endocavitary probes, please follow Departmental protocol and place them in the marked ‘Dirty Probe’ bucket with a biomed bag and patient sticker on it.
If you have any issues with the machines, please let me know and I will contact Biomed.
Thank you for your help in taking care of our ED equipment!
Regarding staffing shortages at Columbia:
If you have any issues you would like to escalate, feel free to reach out to the chiefs (on shift or post shift) so we can help escalate appropriately.
