Fears over faulty hospital scales
« on: February 12, 2008, 11:26:37 PM »
Patients at hospitals throughout the UK could be at risk because staff are using faulty weighing equipment.
In one case, hospital staff used defective bathroom scales to weigh a four-year-old cancer patient in order to calculate her radiation dosage.

Now trading standards officers are to check scales at hospitals after initial visits found many were inaccurate.

They also found equipment was missing and staff did not have access to the right scales for specific tasks.

In the case of the four-year-old cancer patient the error was spotted in time.
