Tool 1 :
Locate ＆ Profile
Part A lists strategies can help locate ultrasound machines in your facility. Locating ultrasound machines can be a challenging task, as they may move around, be uncatalogued, or may be unknown to personnel with responsibility for probe use and reprocessing. After locating ultrasound machines with the Locate tool, Part B is an audit tool that can be used to observe and assess procedure specific ultrasound policy and practice. First record the procedure and department, then work through the profile form. The questions guide the user through their policy and an observation checklist is provided to record actual practice. The tool leads the user to an action plan (Part C) if there is no policy, or if there are discrepancies between policy, practice and guidelines.
