To maintain your facilities accreditation with any of the regulatory agencies you will need to have a record of the equipment in your facility and its service history. Maintaining a complete inventory of your equipment is a must. Preventative Maintenance on your medical equipment should be performed Annually, Semi-Annually, or Quarterly depending on Manufacturer recommendations and requirements. Developing a facility’s Equipment Maintenance Program (EMP) is a necessary step in maintaining accreditation. An Equipment Maintenance Program consists of a comprehensive plan on equipment maintenance frequency, policies,, and procedures.
