Medical Inventory Symbols Test

I’m so tired but I’m looking over my notes for my last exam for a minute in…4 days. This is a medical inventory symbols test I whipped up without fancy css or javascript because, I’m tired. 😀 I also wanted to work on all the platforms I use so it would be helpful anywhere else as well. The medical symbols on products for surgery and patient care are pretty wide and this is not an exhaustive list. Its more to provide some common symbols to help practice what to look for on packaging before distribution to patients or surgery. There’s a lot of processes to keep people feeling better. Knowledge is important and it helps to practice outside of the healthcare setting Its just go-go-go. 😀 The symbols come from the ISO symbols chart. There’s couple hundred symbols there but I stuck to the most relevant on medical supplies. It’s one of the helpful universal symbols throughout any facility. Um. Everything else, is, hm, it varies based on needs of the populations they are serving. Thats one of the hard parts about standards and procedures they are specific and relative. It doesn’t mean you throw your hands up and walk out you just, go hmmm…that’s cool. I could do that. Be open. Yes? Great.
