Over time, when nursing home equipment is utilized, it becomes prone to wear and tear. Every time it is used, moved, or bumped, the calibration is knocked out of alignment slightly. If a sensitive piece of equipment is out of alignment, the readings it provides may be wrong. This can make a huge difference in accurate diagnosis and a missed chance in some cases. Minor calibration mistakes might cause severe injury or in some circumstances, even death. The nursing home administration should maintain everything calibrated so that they can deliver the most accurate outcomes and the best patient care.
