There are multiple medical devices being manufactured today and all these demand a high level of excellence and must be of high quality. Thus, it is essential to have every medical device manufacturing company understanding the necessity of producing quality devices and strategizing on the same. There is need to also manage and ensure maintaining the manufacturers chain of supply. A manufacturer should always communicate to their suppliers and pass thorough information on the intended use of a certain device. For instance while manufacturing a pacemaker, one ought to be meticulous and eventually target elevating the quality levels.
Normally, there are regulatory institutes and departments that monitor and examine the production of these devices so as to affirm their high quality. Therefore, professionals in charge of quality regulation must have thorough understanding on the regulations issued and effected by FDA. The ISO also has their set regulations which must be adhered to appropriately. Even though the regulations availed by both the FDA and ISO may appear conflicting, it is highly appropriate for the manufacturing company to embrace both and in a way have them blend together in a desirable manner.
Always ensure that the manufactured devices does not have defects or errors. There is a necessity to be double sure and certain that all the devices being manufactured record no shortcomings or imperfections whatsoever. It is inappropriate and unethical to have a pacemaker full of defects and errors being issued to a patient. Instead of performing its primary objective, the pacemaker will endanger the wellbeing of the patient. It is therefore the sole responsibility of the manufacturer to deal with any errors or shortcomings acknowledged. It is always appropriate to have empathy and answer whether you could use an impaired device. The level and percentage of defects and errors must be zero. Always be at the forefront of understanding why certain defects occurred; identifying the root cause. Once you identify the main cause, ensure to deal with it and reverse the problem to avoid future defects. Be keen to facilitate regular inspections throughout with an aim of acknowledging problems or mechanical complications.. At times, you might acknowledge multiple causes for these errors on the devices. Endeavor to deal with all the causes as it stands to be the only way out for dispensing defects and not dealing with one major cause first. The very moment you attend to one cause and leave the rest unattended to is the very moment you promote the manufacturing of defected devices.
Conclusively, every manufacturer should glimpse the customer or the patient in all their endeavors. Therefore, seek to understand what external auditors check and use their regulations and guidelines through the manufacturing processes. As a result, your clients will always enjoy acquiring devices from your company as they are perfect and suitable for their health.
