RE: [Histonet] CAP Question

From:"Weems, Joyce"

I take this to mean the yearly maintainence checks and any instrument
repair that has been done. Our Biomed dept does an annual electrical
check on each instrument and keeps those records in their department, as
well as any repairs they do on our instruments. For any instruments we
have service contracts for, I keep records of annual PMs and any repairs
in my office. 

We keep the the daily maintenance/temp charts as QC records.

of each month. I interpret in this  question that "instrument
maintenance " means the daily or monthly maintenance that we do
ourselves in the lab. Such as, changing solutions on our processors and

I am going through the CAP checklist and came upon this question:

ANP23075:? Is there evidence of ongoing evaluation of results of
instrumetn maintenance and function for all devices?

The question before it asks if service reports are kept and they are.?
How do I respond to this question other than the equipment works after
being serviced!!!? Any ideas?

Thank you,
