In more ways than one, today’s doctors can have no borders. Most doctors are urban practitioners so their calling card can be quite loaded at times. There is no time for the traditional midweek day off to play a round of golf and compare notes with colleagues on unusual cases and admire the specifications of a new sports car or SUV. That stereotype went out the window a long time ago. Doctors are mindful not just of that important oath they had to take when they were christened to practice but also of the consequences that could arise due to malpractice.
There is not an iota of time left for aloofness or complacency. All emergencies are properly handled. And when these cannot be dealt with singly, they are correctly referred. It is usual for doctors’ instruments to break down, but it is an accepted practice for the doctor’s surgery to be more than equipped in readiness should instruments be in need of repair or maintenance. While certain implements are away for treatment, others take its place.
One of the most prized instruments in any doctor’s inventory is that of the beloved endoscope. It may occur that the good doctor would much rather use this cherished instrument rather than any other backup. So all good doctors in similar predicaments are grateful in the knowledge and experience that they need not wait longer than three days for their trusted endoscope repair companies to return the polished goods.
The instruments are in good nick once returned. They also remain fully sterilized due to testing procedures in place. Repairs and manufactures are all carried out in line with OEM specifications. Repair costs are not passed on to patients.
