Improve Safety Without Interrupting Care
Evergreen conducts annual medical gas systems inspections and testing on time and without disrupting your facility’s day-to-day patient care and other important responsibilities. Our qualified technicians understand how to work in health care environments and they have plenty of experience to back up their knowledge. With the requisite technical training, Evergreen techs accomplish the testing in a way that improves your systems’ safety and regulatory compliance, while ensuring that your equipment performs properly and efficiently.
Careful Testing of Piped Medical Gas Systems
All testing complies with TJC (The Joint Commission), NFPA (National Fire Protection Association), ASSE (American Society of Sanitary Engineering) and CGA (Compressed Gas Association) standards. We inspect and test the following:
- Pipes and plumbing for leaks
- Master and area alarms for proper functioning
- Zone valves
- Inlets and outlets
- Vacuum system
- Patient terminals
- Source equipment
- Purity/contaminant testing for gaseous contaminants, medical air dew point and solid particulates
Reports and Documentation
After testing, Evergreen Medical provides you with the comprehensive documentation that CMS (Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services) and TJC (The Joint Commission) require. You receive a report that includes a detailed equipment/component inventory listing each item’s manufacturer, model and system type; NFPA (National Fire Protection Association) code references; clear inspection results showing every deficiency; recommended actions to correct deficiencies; and a clear distinction between items that require repair now vs. issues that are grandfathered and need be addressed only during future renovations.
