seca Service – all-inclusive worry-free package for hospitals
Scales in medical use are precision instruments that are subject to many legal regulations. In addition to potential misinterpretation in the implementation of regulations for scales, medical technicians in hospitals have to spend more time on organizational issues for scale maintenance than for other medical devices. It is not unusual for a hospital to encounter problems and incur additional costs when, for example, the Office of Weights and Measures rejects a scale and declares it unfit for use until it can be re-calibrated. The scale falls out of service and the hospital has to pay new fees and re-calibration costs.
As a general service provider, seca Service officially verifies, calibrates and repairs seca scales throughout the country plus scales of all types from other manufacturers. It is all part of the seca Service all-inclusive worry-free package. The medical technician is relieved of operational concerns, medical staff members benefit from uninterrupted routines, the hospital saves money and the Office of Weights and Measures reduces its re-calibration work as a result of the effective service process.
