Why Does Medical Equipment Fail?
Medical equipment typically fails because of defects in the machinery or an error made by the operator. In either case, the results can be catastrophic and patients can be seriously injured or lose their lives. According to a post-market surveillance study on medical devices, all potential device performance problems can never be identified via premarket approval. Animal studies are not likely to identify these defects or errors, and the failure rate of medical devices averages 2% overall. This number may seem insignificant but can become a serious reality when one considers a large number of medical devices that are used throughout our nation. Medical equipment failure accounts for a large number of medical malpractice cases in our country every year.
