Important Accreditations and Compliance Information
Don’t miss the December 2018 deadline!
A prime responsibility of the administration of a health care facility
is to ensure that proper and adequate documentation systems are established and observed. Such systems should include (but not necessarily be limited to) the following:
Supply and availability of equipment documentation,
service records, fault reports, hazard tags.
5.5.3 Operator instructions
Most equipment requires some operator proficiency. Formal instruction of staff in operation of equipment should be performed, particularly when new staff or new equipment is concerned.
User manuals, written in English and in terms acceptable to the user, should be available to the user at all times, near the equipment.
Colour illustrations should not be relied upon as the sole means of identifying or clarifying important instructions or warnings.
Complete a gap analysis to determine the current level of compliance and document the findings. Access to the standard and relevant references outlined in AS/NZ 4187:2014 are also necessary to ensure that the health service organisation's action plan is compre- hensive and addresses gaps within the organi- sation. Without access to these references the health service organisation cannot adequately assess gaps and can therefore not adequately plan for them.
Develop and document a detailed implementation plan using quality improvement principles specifying timeframes, milestones and deliverables to enable full implementation of AS/NZS 4187:2014 over a five year period, from December 2016.
Implement the plan and demonstrate progress toward implementation.
Compliance with relevant national or international standards and manufacturer’s instructions for cleaning, disinfection and sterilisation of reusable instruments and devices is regularly monitored.
7.1 Instructions for Use
Clear responsibilities should exist for ensuring that the
manufacturer’s instructions are passed on to all users
There should be suitable arrangements for the purchase, service, maintenance, renewal and replacement of premises (including grounds) and equipment. These arrangements must make sure that they meet the requirements of current legislation and guidance,
and the provider's policies or procedures.
All equipment must be used, stored and maintained in line with manufacturers' instructions.
It should only be used for its intended purpose and by the person for whom is it provided.
An organisation-wide equipment and medical devices management policy that
covers: acquisition, record-keeping and equipment inventories;
availability of manufacturers' instructions for use; training; repair and maintenance; single use devices use; decommissioning; disposal and actions required on manufacturers' corrective action notices.
