Models for different health care facilities. Medical devices: their selection and purchase, safety and reliable operation, decommissioning and ecological liquidation. External maintenance based on agreements. Methodology of the internal maintenance. Safety risk assessment. Valid legislation and technical norms. Relationships technician-medical doctor, technician-nurse and technician-patient. Rights, duties and responsibilities of the technicians in medical health care.
There is necessary and mandatory attendance for all exercises. Apology is possible in case of one case only (only serious reasons). The course ends with assessment and exam. As regards assessment, there are required 3 mandatory presentations, i.e. presentation (PPT, PPTX or PDF file) of the topic „organizational chart of the typical hospital in my country“ (including www links), presentation (PPT, PPTX or PDF file) of the topic „legislation of the medical device in my country“ (including www links) and presentation (PPT, PPTX or PDF file) of the typical technical standard (norm) for medical devices in my country (including www links). As regards exam test, i.e. 20 questions with three possible answers, only one is always correct - multiple choices) evaluated with respect to the grading scale ECTS. Max. number of points is 100, i.e. for one right answer 5 points and for wrong answer 0 point. The minimum number of points is 50 pts for this exam test.
