TRAINING
SCOPE


20

Planned Preventive Maintenance (PPM)

PPM is a periodic maintenance on biomedical equipment to minimize the risk of failure
and to ensure continuous proper operation. This action includes cleaning, lubricating, calibrating,
and replacement of certain part, e.g. Batteries.

The Technical Support team will periodically review the equipment inventory or asset list
and identify equipments that require PPM to be carried out and list them in the PPM Equipment
List. The review may be based on the original equipment manufacturers recommendation of
PPM or recommendation based on international bodies or institutions like ECRI.

The Technical Support team will prepare the PPM requisites as in the Maintenance
Instruction Sheet extracted from service manuals or ECRI for each equipment identified for PPM
which amongst others include a list of work instructions which illustrates the scope of work to
the maintenance personnel such as inspection or degree of wear and tear, adjustment or
calibration of controls, replenishing of spares and consumable.

The Technical Support team will prepare an annual calendar planner for the PPM, which
is referred to as the PPM Calendar. This planner will indicate the projected implementation of
the PPM frequency and the planner will be distributed to each and every ward and unit in the
hospital. The head nurse or Sister will sign a consent form stating the receiver of the planner.

The date of PPM implementation shall be discussed between the Technical Support and
Users till a mutual agreement is achieved by considering the availability or access of the
equipment at that projected time.

The Technical Support will prepare a work order for the PPM job. If the work is to be
carried out by sub-contractors, the Technical Support will supervise the job performed and
complete the work order form. Upon completion of the PPM job, a PPM/EST/Performance
sticker will be pasted on the equipment. An example of it is as below:

21







Planned Preventive Maintenance Sticker

Any PPM that needs to be rescheduled needs to be approved by the customer (user) and a
new agreed date will be recorded in the PPM Notice under the Reschedule column. Lastly, the
Technical Support will need to ensure that the customer acknowledges the acceptance of the
serviced equipment, verifies that the service was completed and all information related was
recorded in the work order form.


















22

Breakdown Maintenance

Breakdown Maintenance is the action performed to restore an item to a specified
condition when it fails. Technical Support will respond, evaluate and classify each breakdown
maintenance work request.

For In-House work orders, allocation of resources or labour and requisition of spare parts
and tools will be made. The corresponding and necessary spare parts can be obtained from the
store.

As for materials and services not included in the centrally procured list, the Technical
Support will purchase those materials or services by using the Material Requisition Issue Note
(MRIN).

The Technical Support is responsible to ensure the execution of the work order to be
carried our In-House or Contract-Out by approved sub-contractors or service agents. In Contract-
Out, the Technical Support will need to ensure that the work done is within specifications. The
Technical Support upon completion of work will complete the work order.

The Technical Support is responsible in ensuring a valid calibration upon the test
equipment before tests are carried out. If the equipment is removed from the specified site, the
Technical Support will need to notify the user upon completion of the maintenance, arrange
delivery of the item back to the user and lastly operate or test run the equipment in the presence
of the user.







23

Beyond Economic Repair (BER)

Beyond Economic Repair is the process upon equipment that cannot longer be used or
should be deleted from the record. The criteria for an equipment to be announced Beyond
Economic Repair is:
Cannot longer be used
Not economical for repairing
The economical use was over (~10 years in Malaysia)
The equipment is outdated

The Technical Support will make an assessment of the equipment based on the criteria
stated above and will fill up a BER Recommendation Form for approval by the Service Centre
Head and BER 1 Form for Application For Beyond Economical Repair Certificate.

The user may request for the equipment to be removed to the condemned storage area. A
work order form is needed for this removal. The Technical Support will make assessment of the
request for removal and the user will verify the removal of the item.

Once the approval is obtained, the asset records will be updated. No maintenance will be
carried out on BER certified items.

24

Testing and Commissioning (T & C)

Testing and Commissioning is the procedure for accepting equipment newly received or
installed in hospitals or institutions under the Biomedical Engineering Maintenance Services.

The Technical Support will open a manual work order for the acceptance for the
equipment. He/she will witness and verify the acceptance testing, demonstration and
commissioning of the delivered equipment carried out by the equipment supplier.

The Technical Support also verifies the delivery of the equipment and all accessories,
service manuals, spare parts list and warranty agreement and other documentation as per supply
contract. Inventories of the equipment will be done in the computer system by assigning a unique
number to the equipment and identifying the equipment with a label.

The Technical Support will inform the user if there were any irregularity in the supply
and will follow up with the supplier so that any shortfall in supply as mentioned in the supply
contract will be rectified.
Upon completion of the Testing and Commissioning, the Technical Support will perform
IEC 601 if required and will attach the results together with the manual work order. A safety test
sticker (PPM/EST/Performance Sticker) will be placed on the machine.








Testing and Commissioning Sticker


25

It is the responsibility of the Technical Support to witness the testing which is up to the
Manufacturers Specification and Customer Requirements as per Service Manual.

The test equipment has to be ensured a valid calibration before tests are carried out. If the
test equipment has no valid certificates, the Technical Support will arrange for the equipment to
be calibrated and if necessary for the testing to be completed using certified equipments.

Upon successful completion of the test, the Technical Support will record all the
information in the Equipment Acceptance Register, where a copy of it will be issued to the user
certifying the equipment for clinical service.

The Technical Support ensures that the user of the equipment understands the operation
of the equipment and the user maintenance that is needed to be carried out by them by either
arranging or in-service training by the equipment supplier or by direst training of the users.
Either form of user training carried out will be documented.

Finally, the Technical Support will close the work order after obtaining the verification
by the user. The new equipment will be updated in the PPM schedule for periodic maintenance.













26

User Training

User Training is brought up generally for understanding the operation of an equipment,
daily user maintenance and also safety and precaution of the equipment. User training is selected
based on the quantity of majority daily usage, high frequency, and demand or request by the end
users.

The training is conducted not only for the end users, but for Advance Pacts staffs as
well. This could be useful for new recruited staffs in giving them a perception on what the
biomedical equipment is and practice the maintenance.

In general, trainings can be divided into two. Firstly, the manufacturer carries out the
training indirectly during the commissioning. Secondly, Advance Pacts specialist or trained
staffs will carry out in-house training. These formal trainings are normally held in Pantai
Medivest Meeting Room at Hospital Melaka. The training session is normally half an hour and
will be followed by a Q & A session.

User trainings can also be conducted informally, for example, when the technical staffs
are on the end users request duty and technical advice. Sometimes, if the technical staffs sense an
inappropriate operating way by the end users, they will give a short and brief training in order to
enhance their skills in operating and maintaining the equipment properly.
