Certified technicians are dedicated to the installation, inspection and repair of equipment to meet accrediting agency guidelines. Annual medical gas verifications test for purity, leaks and functionality. Ultimately, verifying a safe working environment.
Ethylene Oxide Monitoring (EtO)
Air monitoring is necessary to measure potential risk associated with this colorless, odorless gas that is flammable and highly reactive. Our analysis is centered around sterilization of hospital supplies and equipment and ensures existing environment levels comply with regulatory guidelines.
Formaldehyde and Xylene monitoring
Our technicians measure airborne levels to identify potential risk of excessive concentrations of formaldehyde and xylene. These studies ensure all engineering controls are performing as designed to reduce the levels below the permissible exposure limit.
Glutaraldehyde is a cold sterilant used to disinfect heat-sensitive instruments. Health care employees may be exposed to glutaraldehyde in histology and pathology labs. Ambient air samples are obtained by our technicians prior to, during and after use to verify existing levels and ensure compliance.
Medical Gas Analysis
Regular analysis to ensure medical gases comply with all standards, requirements and recommendations established by The Joint Commission and NFPA. Testing the proficiency of a medical gas distribution system includes inlets, outlets, zone valves, area alarms and all source distribution equipment (excludes bulk oxygen system).
Monitoring and documentation of air pressures and air exchange rates in sensitive ventilation areas of the facility to verify employee safety.
Waste Anesthetic Gases
NIOSH and OSHA guidelines are followed in all types of facilities where anesthetic gas is dispensed. Our technicians will measure and document the anesthetic gas and identify methods to limit excessive exposure.
