Preventative maintenance is important to ensure equipment functions properly and patient safety is maintained. Many states have laws that require all equipment in a nursing home and hospitals to be inspected and certified to be safe and in proper working order on at least an annual basis.

What is “Preventative Maintenance”?

The care and servicing by trained personnel for the purpose of maintaining equipment and facilities in satisfactory operating condition by providing for systematic inspection, detection and correction of incipient failures either before they occur or before they develop into major defects. Maintenance, including tests, measurements, adjustments, and parts replacement, performed specifically to reduce faults from occurring.
