Annual BioMed meeting allows staff to brush up on skills

Jul 08, 2015

The annual Eastern Region Biomedical Technician meeting is a chance for RVM BioMeds to brush up on their troubleshooting skills, learn more about safety, and educate themselves about dialysis and their role in our business.  Held on June 18 at Bayonne in New Jersey, the meeting was attended by 15 BioMed techs.

Held from 8 am to 4:30 pm, East Technical Director Jim Foley coordinated the content and led the meeting.   Attendees covered troubleshooting dialysis machines, how to use volt meters, soldering bushes in dialysis machine motors, and other technical details.  Safety is a high priority at RVM, so Linda Walck discussed the BioMeds' role in maintaining a safe environment for both patients and staff.



New this year was learning the skill of soldering motors inside Fresenius machines.  The brushes in the motors should be replaced every 8,000 hours, so having this maintenance skill benefits RVM and saves money in the long run.

Senior Divisional Director Tim Weaver covered the business of dialysis regarding finances and how the BioMed's repair and technical skills positively affects the RVM financial bottom line.

That evening, several staff members (and a Traveling RASKAL) watched the New York Yankees beat the Miami Marlins 9-4.
