BOC Healthcare supports hospitals and healthcare facilities by providing a holistic solution to the safe delivery of medical gases. As part of its Managed Equipment service, BOC offers Medical Devices Annual Test and Inspection. The service covers flowmeters, suction controllers, medical gas regulators and demand valves and ensures equipment is working at optimum level.
The service helps hospitals and facilities to prepare for Care Quality Commission (CQC) inspections and allows compliance with Regulation 16 of the Health and Social Care Act 2008, and the Medicines and Healthcare Products Regulatory Group (MHRA) guidelines on Managing Medical Devices.
Provided by BOC’s expert medical engineering team, it is an invaluable service for Authorised Persons (MGPS) and Estates personnel.
A Comprehensive Service
BOC will visit the site annually to carry out a comprehensive service that includes:
- Visual check
- Connection and full functional test, flow check, leak test and gauge condition (and where required, changing of O-rings and Bodok seals)
- Registration or update of serial/asset number
- Annual colour-coded test due to label affixed
- Full documentation of work, including asset register
All devices will be left fully operational and ready for immediate use, with any non-confirming devices identified and removed.
Repair and Maintenance
The service includes minor repairs such as the replacement of broken flowmeter nozzles, O-rings, Bodok seals and suction controllers (on/off lever). Non-conforming or unserviceable devices can be replaced with spare equipment, provided free issue by the hospital where possible. Alternatively, BOC can provide brand new, high quality replacements.
BOC can also service any equipment that needs regular servicing at the manufacturer’s recommended intervals, including ENTONOX® demand valve testing.
BOC’s annual testing and inspection of medical devices offers hospitals the peace of mind that comes from working with a trusted supplier with years of experience and an unrivalled understanding of Medical Gas and Medical Devices. The service ensures that all equipment is operating safely inline with the CQC regulations.
