Accurate weight measurement is extremely important in the health industry. The weight of a person can often be the first indication that there may be an illness present, as well as providing a quick glimpse into the patient’s health status. In addition, the weight of a patient is usually taken into consideration when it comes to determining medication dosages, as well as the ideal overall treatment plan.
It is therefore important that healthcare providers, hospitals, and physicians use accurate, high precision scales when weighing their patients. Inaccurate readings can lead to incorrect diagnosis and medication dosage, which could lead to further complications later on.
