Defeating the Healthcare Deferred Maintenance Monster

Deferred maintenance. It’s a beast right up there with Smaug, Drogon, and the Jabberwocky. A real dragon.Especially in healthcare - where an asset failure can literally mean life or death for a patient - that dragon can strike fear into the hearts of even the bravest facility managers. Between tight budgets, limited manpower, and the reality of how busy healthcare facilities are, you’ll most likely never completely clear out your deferred maintenance backlog.You may not be able to fully vanquish your deferred maintenance dragon (it’s just the nature of the beast). But you can still win by keeping the monster under control and too weak to endanger patient safety.
