Electrical Safety Inspection

We provide electrical safety inspection services for medical equipment.  Whether you need to have one single piece of equipment inspected or an entire facility’s worth of equipment inspected we are the company you should call.  We are able to provide inspections to multiple standards.  The standard most facilities we work with use is NFPA 99.  This standard establishes criteria for levels of health care services or systems based on risk to the patients, staff, or visitors in health care facilities to minimize the hazards of fire, explosion, and electricity.

Here’s what you can expect if you decide to have us inspect your medical equipment.

  1. Digital reports for each item inspected including verified test results from a calibrated safety analyzer (physical reports will be provided upon request)
  2. Control numbers assigned to each asset along with inspection stickers notifying staff when inspection is due
  3. Tension and fault condition testing of electrical outlets and receptacles
  4. Completed to NFPA 99 standard
  5. A quick turnaround between contacting us and scheduling your inspection

Electrical Safety Inspection Fluke 609 Analyzer

Testing Equipment

We use Fluke safety analyzers to conduct our electrical safety inspections.  The two types of safety analyzers we use in the field are the Fluke ESA615 and Fluke ESA620.  These safety analyzers are integrated with our software in order to provide you with efficient electrical safety inspections and reports.

Our safety analyzers are calibrated annually to ensure you receive the best possible service.

Fluke ESA615 Safety Analyzer

The ESA615 Electrical Safety Analyzer brings fast and simple automated testing in the form of a portable analyzer to healthcare technology professionals that perform electrical safety testing on medical equipment both in the field and in facilities. Whether it is simple testing or comprehensive analysis, the ESA615 can do it all. The ESA615 is an all-in-one solution with a safety analyzer and ECG simulator in a single electrical safety test instrument.

When Do You Need an Electrical Safety Inspection?

Healthcare facilities should have established intervals for electrical safety testing of their medical equipment.  That being said testing intervals tend to vary depending on a particular facility’s governing body, federal, state, or local guidelines, risk-based criteria resulting in more or less frequent testing of particular types of equipment.  Most of the facilities we service have intervals between 6 months and 1-year with more frequent testing for higher risk types of equipment as mandated by their governing bodies.

Here are some common reasons to have an electrical safety inspection:

  1. Your healthcare facility is due for an inspection.  This should be apparent to staff as stickers placed on patient care related equipment will have an inspection due date visible.
  2.  Any incoming equipment will result in the need for an inspection.  This could be due to the purchase of new equipment, acquisition of rental or loaner equipment, and even transfers from one facility to another.
  3. After a corrective maintenance (repair) medical equipment should undergo an electrical safety inspection before being put back into service.

Standards

In the United States, there are several primary and secondary organizations setting standards:

  1. National Fire Protection Association (NFPA): NFPA 99 Standard for Health Care Facilities is the primary standard addressing electrical safety testing required in health care institutions. Other publications include NFPA 70, National Electrical Code, and NFPA 70E, Electrical Safety in the Workplace.
  2. Association for the Advancement of Medical Instrumentation (AAMI): ANSI/AAMI ES1 Safe Current Limits for Electro-medical Apparatus is another commonly-accepted standard.
  3. Underwriters Laboratories (UL): UL544, Medical Equipment requirements is a standard for manufacturers, not hospitals. These standards may be referenced by accreditation, code or regulatory organizations such as the Joint Commission, Occupational Health and Safety Administration or other organizations monitoring health care institutions in the United States.
  4. Canadian Standards Association (CSA): CAN/CSA C22.2 NO. 60601-1-08 Medical Electrical Equipment Part 1: General Requirements for Basic Safety and Essential Performance (Adopted IEC 60601-1:2005, third edition, 2005-12)

Medical Equipment Inspection and Calibration Services

Medical equipment inspection services are exceedingly important. The machines we use daily are so easily taken for granted, but they’re not perfect—they will eventually break down. But when these same machines can make the difference between life and death, the importance of proper maintenance takes on even greater weight. Regular inspection and consistent calibration ensure that your medical equipment operates at peak capacity. Examining your equipment also ensures that it meets the regulations mandated by law.

Improper readings stemming from the gradual falling out of factory-calibrated settings are a great example of the necessity of our medical equipment inspection and calibration services. A piece of equipment may appear to work, but it may be providing improper readings if it has gone a long time without recalibration. Take advantage of our medical device inspection and calibration services to keep your staff and patients safe while protecting yourself under the law.

We offer two types of medical equipment inspections. We provide:

  • Medical Equipment Calibration Services, which ensure that your medical equipment is operating
    • We utilize the proper calibration tools that allow us to test the actual output against the device’s readings—this ensures that your device is properly calibrated.
    • If your device isn’t calibrated correctly, we’ll restore it to the manufacturer’s original specifications.
  • Electrical Safety Inspections, which make certain that your medical equipment is safe for both the operator and the patient.
    • We check for proper grounding, any existing current leakage, frayed wiring, discolored prongs, and more.
    • All information is properly documented and stored so that we can better service your equipment.

Let us help ensure that your medical devices are operating at their best. Keep your medical device inspections up-to-date with our medical equipment inspection and calibration services.

All inspections are completed by our team of biomedical technicians.
