Safer Medical Device Implementation in Health Care Facilities

Step 5: Implement and Monitor the New Device

After a successful device evaluation or pilot test, health care facilities will purchase and use (i.e., implement) the selected safer medical device. NIOSH recommends that the new device be monitored after implementation. This might include determining the need for additional training, soliciting informal feedback on health care worker experience with the device, or identifying possible adverse effects of the device on patient care.
