Maintenance records!!! oh my lord, that made me laugh. I had two actually SMOKE while I was using them. A few days later maintenance sent one back saying there was no prob -- I would not allow it in my room. A norse was even with me when it smoked! These were older models that were moved to the antepartum unit since they were replaced by newer ones for l&d. I was using a lot more intensively than most antepartum patients. They also tried to wake me up every 15 minutes for an hour after midnight on Y2K until I made them get it out of my room. Like, why not reset the date to think it was 1976 or something.

Maintenance, hahahaha!

On medical records, the last fetal monitoring tape when my ds died mysteriously disappeared.

If the machines are so lousy and records are so unreliable, why would anyone rely on these machines?

Why are these monitors required to record our darling child's health and well-being if they smoke, spark, sputter, and records are lost?

They hold up in court that is why.

Amazing world we all live in.

As far as the judicial and medical system is concerned, they are more reliable than you.
