MEDICAL PERFORMANCE VERIFICATION AS/NZS 3551:2012
- AED Performance Verification
- Electric Hospital Beds
- Patient Lifting Hoists
AS/NZS 3551:2012 (Management Program for Medical Equipment Standard) outlines the procedures required to develop maintenance and management programs for medical equipment.
Our myTEST&TAG application is a software that incorporates AS/NZS 3551:2012 verification standards in our testing parameters when checking your medical devices.
This involves testing according to the original equipment manufacturer requirement. The myTEST&TAG software enables these detail checks to be carried out on all mainstream medical devices in the marketplace including but not limited to the following:
- Alternating Air Mattress Pumps
- Buffalo Filter – Smoke Evacuator
- Detachable Medical Electrical Cords
- Electric Hospital Beds (includes Mechanical Check)
- Electric Adjustable Chair (includes Mechanical Check)
- Electronic Thermometer (medical grade only)
- Hydraulic Adjustable Beds (includes Mechanical Check)
- Medical Power Adaptors and Battery Charge
- Oxygen Concentrator
- Oxygen Flow Regulators
- Patient Lifting Hoist (includes Mechanical Check)
- Patient Weighing Scales (stand on/sit/wheelchair)
- Pulse Oximeter
- Shower Trolley
- Suction Pumps
- Syringe pumps
In addition, TEST & TAG can provide annual load test for compliance with Standard AS-ISO-10535 for patient lifting hoists. This is done in conjunction with the annual mechanical service and performance verification checks.
An electronic report is generated at the time of the testing with key information such as location, appliance description, test results and recommendation for the faulty equipment. Failed devices which require repair, calibration or maintenance will be emailed to the Property Manager/Facility Manager, supplier or maintenance provider including photographs, date, time and corrective action.
You can ask for a demonstration of the myTEST&TAG system and have confidence in the services being provided with transparency and assurance.
We have trained and experienced Technicians carrying out management programs for medical equipment throughout New Zealand.
All Automated External Defibrillators should be tested at least annually. The standard for medical equipment AS/NZS 3551: 2012 provides examples of some essential safety and performance guidelines for AEDs. These parameters, such as correct analysis of cardiac waveform and delivered energy can only be tested with specialized test equipment.
TEST & TAG has the test equipment and can perform all the required checks on all mainstream AED equipment in the marketplace.
To ensure that all checks will be carried out the myTEST&TAG software has now been set up for AED testing. This will give you confidence that your AED is ready for use in an emergency. Our trained Technicians are able to install, test and provide your site with an essential AED equipment.
