Managing medical gases demands control, expertise and coordination throughout the healthcare facility to ensure high standards of safety, reliability and efficiency.
There are innumerable issues to consider—supply, monitoring, system maintenance, staff training, hospital-wide risk assessment—while ensuring all aspects of the services meet the medical gas compliance standards and regulations. Failure in the quality of medical gas delivery can have very serious implications on a healthcare facility and its patients.
Operating procedures to be applied in medical gas delivery have been defined in several international and national standards, for example AS2568, AS2896, AS3551, HTM-2022 and HTM02-01. As a result, more and more facilities are implementing hospital-wide audits to review the risks of their pipe line systems, and their compliance with the standards. Inspection authorities are taking an increasingly strong line on compliance. Insurance companies are following suit, setting higher insurance premiums if the correct standards are not applied.
From every standpoint, BOC Healthcare aims to support healthcare facilities in meeting these challenges, saving precious resources while raising the levels of supply reliability, safety, efficiency and compliance with medical gas standards and regulations. Our enterprising approach means that solutions are adapted to need.
