IS THE CHALLENGE OF SETTING UP AN AEM PLAN PUTTING YOUR FACILITY AT RISK?

Your Facility Needs an AEM Plan

Here’s why: since 2011, there have been a series of updates in CMS Hospital Equipment Maintenance Requirements. More specifically, since 2013, The Joint Commission has tweaked requirements to more closely match the CMS approach that permits experience and other parameters to factor into maintenance decisions (Source: Alternate Equipment Management [AEM] Program Compliance; 52nd Annual ASHE Conference, July 2015; David Stymiest).

To put is simply:  the new standard and requirement for Preventative Maintenance performance is 100% and you will need to have historical records to show that the work is being done.  There is no margin for error.  If you plan to deviate from manufacturer’s recommended maintenance for any assets not governed by life safety, accreditation or other AHJ standards, then an AEM plan must be developed and deployed.
