If you run a hospital then you must consider a Hospital Facilities Condition Assessment! And you might not know what kind to get. So don’t be the kind of administrator who does whatever is most comfortable. Invest time and effort and find a consultant you trust and discuss your needs and budget and risk. Craft a plan that fits you. Otherwise a calamity might happen when you are unprepared and you will be paying off your miscalculation for the rest of your life.
Every Hospital Facilities consultant has gone thru rigorous training to certify and knows so many laws and conditions that you don’t have to.
Now we all know how most professionals give us unsatisfactory service. Especially with your hospital you want total satisfaction.
So don’t just say you don’t trust anybody so you won’t talk to any Hospital Facilities consultant. Talk to a number of consultants and find the one you trust.
I recommend you never act in desperation. Take a step back and allow yourself to choose between options. Once the calamity happens and you choose a solution its too late to change. So make a considered decision. It will only take you another few hours. Remember: you’re dealing with millions of dollars and people’s health and livelihood.
Here is the key:Before you make that appointment, ask these questions to the consultant:Can you see me immediately?Have you ever dealt with this kind of problem before?
The first 2 questions are pretty obvious.
You can get an impression of how competent a consultant is just by the way he answers the phone or the staff he hires. But you want to have your own personal experience before you choose.
Another thing you can do is to go online and look for client testimonials and case studies.
That’s a good start to find right Hospital Facilities Consultant.
