We are an acute hospital Trust and as such, equipment utilised for clinical trial patients in the main (weighing scales, BP monitors , infusion pumps etc etc ) is not separate from patients receiving treatment outside the clinical trial setting.

Although there are contracts in place to service, maintain and calibrate all equipment , we currently do not generally receive separate certification for individual pieces of kit as there are additional costs for this.

What would be considered as sufficient evidence to demonstrate that equipment is calibrated in the absence of a certificate.

I would be very interested to hear any comments.

Thank you
