The Importance of Medical Equipment Testing

The Importance of Medical Equipment Testing

Medical Equipment TestingIn addition to regular maintenance, medical equipment should be tested and inspected on a regular basis to ensure that it is functioning properly and working safely and efficiently.

In the healthcare industry most medical equipment must be compliant with the Health Care Facilities Code mandated by the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA).  According to NFPA.org, “The NFPA 99 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.”

Stat Biomedical Technicians, Inc. offers annual medical equipment testing and inspection services. Our knowledgeable and highly experienced technicians work closely with all of our clients in the healthcare industry to ensure that their equipment is in compliance with NFPA 99 and other essential annual testing requirements. They perform annual safety and performance testing along with annual calibrations of equipment to ensure that all equipment is working safely, effectively and in accordance with all NFPA 99 standards and requirements.

In addition to comprehensive medical equipment testing, our technicians provide detailed documentation and data to support their testing, repairs and services showing that they adhere to the annual testing requirements.  This professional documentation includes all essential details needed for compliance.
