AS/NZS 2500:2020 requirements
5.4 DocumentationA prime responsibility of the administration of a responsible organization is to ensure that proper and adequate documentation systems are established and observed. Such systems should include, but not necessarily be limited to, the following:
c) Supply and availability of equipment documentation, including operating instructions, service records, fault reports, and hazard tags.
5.5.3 Operator instructionsMost equipment requires some operator proficiency. Formal instruction of staff in operation of equipment should be performed, particularly for new staff or new equipment. User manuals, written in English and in terms acceptable to the user, should be available to the user at all times, and positioned near the equipment. Colour illustrations should not be relied upon as the sole means of identifying or clarifying important instructions or warnings.
AS/NZS 4187:2014 requirements
a) Complete a gap analysis to determine the current level of compliance and document the findings. Access to the standard and relevant references outlined in AS/NZ 4187:2014 are also necessary to ensure that the health service organisation's action plan is comprehensive and addresses gaps within the organisation. Without access to these references the health service organisation cannot adequately assess gaps and can therefore not adequately plan for them.
b) Develop and document a detailed implementation plan using quality improvement principles specifying timeframes, milestones and deliverables to enable full implementation of AS/NZS 4187:2014 over a five year period, from December 2016.
c) Implement the plan and demonstrate progress toward implementation.
