A Massachusetts healthcare center, in an effort to become proactive about the maintenance of facility equipment and to avoid run-to-fail operations, hired Triumvirate to perform an assessment of its campus.
After a close review and walkthrough of each building and each room, Triumvirate proposed a number of actions as part of a written assessment.
Recommendations were organized into three categories: immediate service, additional inspection and/or maintenance recommended but not urgent, and no problems found. A major proposal was to clean the secondary containment within a main accumulation area (MAA) of the hospital. The debris and dirt underneath the floor grates in the MAA put the client at risk for citation during regulatory inspection.
The hospital signed a working agreement with Triumvirate to perform the work, and our FacilityCare team arrived on-site the next day, equipped with all necessary resources.
Triumvirate’s team took the following measures:
Triumvirate served as a compliance adviser for the client, alerting the hospital that its MAA and other equipment required immediate action to stay within compliance. Not only was Triumvirate able to save the institution thousands of potential regulatory fines, but was able to keep the institution in good standing with the joint commission and streamline their preventative maintenance process for safety, compliance and cost.
