Biomedical Equipment Service & Repair

Biomedical Equipment Repair
Health care providers, whether in hospitals, surgery centers, laboratories or private doctors’ offices, understand the importance of patient and employee safety. We at Quince Medical & Surgical conduct thorough maintenance evaluations to make sure that equipment used in diagnosis, life support, operation theaters and other areas within a facility adheres to federal, state and local safety codes. Proper and timely maintenance ensures that all medical equipment undergoes routine calibration and is hazard-free. Electrical safety testing is a critical element of an annual inspection program.

Biomedical Equipment Repair Service

Although annual inspections help keep equipment functioning at peak efficiency, we at Quince Medical & Surgical know that repair is sometimes required. In the event that serious problems are identified, loaner equipment may be required to ensure that diagnostic and critical care systems continue to be available. Loaner equipment must meet the same stringent standards as permanent equipment.

Non-Medical Equipment

Other elements of medical facilities to be inspected during annual service checks include non-medical equipment such as exam room tables and chairs, hospital beds and portable equipment. Exam room tables and chairs must be able to bear the weight of patients. Examination tables must be safe for ambulatory patients to access. Electrical, pneumatic and mechanical components will be inspected.

Preventive Maintenance

Preventive maintenance is of importance because it ensures that equipment performs according to manufacturers’ recommendations and standards. Electrical safety testing includes examination of electrical connections, electrical distribution systems and electrically powered equipment. Our technicians are trained to identify leakages, frays and other unsafe elements. Finding small problems before they become major hazards lowers the risk of electrical shock, fire, burns and electrocution.

Electrical preventive maintenance is done by experienced technicians in conformance with the National Fire Protection Association’s electrical codes for health care facilities. Our medical equipment inspections are in keeping with regulations administered by several federal agencies including the Food and Drug Administration and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration.

Annual autoclave and sterilizer evaluations reduce the risk of ruptures and instrument contamination. Our experienced technicians are trained in autoclave and sterilizer maintenance. We examine all working components including locking mechanisms and pressure valves.

Inspection of diagnostic machinery such as EKG units by our certified technicians will identify any unsafe elements that may pose a risk to patients or staff. Evaluation includes calibration and examination of wiring and electrodes. All problems identified with diagnostic devices such as EKG machinery are documented in a written evaluation.
