Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    Which of the following is not a reason for tracking supplies, Eqiupment and instruments

    • A.

      Measure item usage

    • B.

      Ensure that items can be quickly located

    • C.

      Meet CDC and OSHA requirements

    • D.

      Assist with quality process

    Correct Answer
    C. Meet CDC and OSHA requirements
    Explanation
    Tracking supplies, equipment, and instruments is important for several reasons, including measuring item usage, ensuring that items can be quickly located, and assisting with the quality process. However, meeting CDC and OSHA requirements is not a specific reason for tracking these items. While tracking may be necessary to comply with CDC and OSHA regulations, it is not the primary purpose of tracking supplies, equipment, and instruments.

    Rate this question:

  • 2. 

    Which of the following tracking methods provides real time information

    • A.

      RFID

    • B.

      Laser-etched bar codes

    • C.

      Standard bar code

    • D.

      Dot matrix applications

    Correct Answer
    A. RFID
    Explanation
    RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) is a tracking method that provides real-time information. It uses radio waves to automatically identify and track tags attached to objects. Unlike other tracking methods such as laser-etched bar codes, standard bar codes, or dot matrix applications, RFID technology allows for instant and continuous tracking updates, making it ideal for applications that require real-time monitoring and control of inventory, assets, or personnel.

    Rate this question:

  • 3. 

    Point of use computing

    • A.

      Is impossible in Central Service because of infection control requirements

    • B.

      Provide no benefit to the central service department

    • C.

      Moves computers into central service work areas

    • D.

      Eliminates data entry jobs

    Correct Answer
    C. Moves computers into central service work areas
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "moves computers into central service work areas". This answer suggests that point of use computing involves relocating computers to the central service work areas. This implies that the computers are no longer at the point of use, which could be due to infection control requirements or the lack of benefit to the central service department. This answer does not provide any information about the elimination of data entry jobs, so it cannot be the correct answer.

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    Which of the following in NOT a feature of an instrument tracking system

    • A.

      Productivity information

    • B.

      Financial data

    • C.

      Quality assurance information

    • D.

      Product updates and recall information

    Correct Answer
    D. Product updates and recall information
    Explanation
    An instrument tracking system is designed to track and manage instruments within a facility. It helps in maintaining productivity by providing information about instrument usage, availability, and location. It also provides financial data related to instrument maintenance and repair costs. Additionally, it ensures quality assurance by tracking calibration and maintenance schedules. However, product updates and recall information are not typically included in an instrument tracking system, as they are more related to product management and safety regulations.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    Computerized tracking systems are fast, but manual tracking systems are more effective for tracking data

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Manual tracking systems are not more effective for tracking data compared to computerized tracking systems. This is because computerized tracking systems are designed to handle large amounts of data efficiently and accurately. They can automate processes, reduce human error, and provide real-time updates. Manual tracking systems, on the other hand, rely on human input and are prone to mistakes, slower processing times, and limited scalability. Therefore, computerized tracking systems are generally considered more effective for tracking data.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    Once a tracking system is implemented, there is generally no need to update system information

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement is false because once a tracking system is implemented, it is necessary to update system information regularly. This is because system information such as tracking codes, customer details, and inventory levels may change over time. Regular updates ensure that the tracking system remains accurate and up-to-date, providing reliable information for tracking and monitoring purposes.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    At this time, tracking systems are unable to track worker productivity information

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Tracking systems are able to track worker productivity information.

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    Tracking systems can help manage preventative maintenance schedules

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Tracking systems can help manage preventative maintenance schedules by keeping a record of when maintenance tasks need to be performed and sending reminders to ensure that they are completed on time. These systems can track the usage and condition of equipment or vehicles, and based on that information, generate schedules for maintenance tasks such as inspections, repairs, or replacements. By managing preventative maintenance schedules effectively, organizations can reduce the risk of unexpected breakdowns, improve the lifespan of their assets, and optimize their maintenance operations.

    Rate this question:

  • 9. 

    Most central service departments employ some sort of automated information management system

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The given statement suggests that most central service departments utilize automated information management systems. This implies that these departments rely on technology to manage and process information efficiently. Automated systems can help streamline operations, improve communication, and enhance overall productivity. Therefore, the answer is true.

    Rate this question:

  • 10. 

    Tracking systems can help facilities manage costs

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Tracking systems can help facilities manage costs by providing real-time data and insights into various aspects of operations. These systems can track inventory levels, monitor equipment usage, and analyze energy consumption, allowing facilities to identify areas where costs can be reduced or optimized. By having a clear understanding of resource utilization and potential inefficiencies, facilities can make informed decisions to streamline processes, reduce waste, and ultimately save money. Therefore, the statement "Tracking systems can help facilities manage costs" is true.
