For hospitals, air quality and quality assurance are vital operational systems. The monitoring systems to ensure patient safety and quality assurance are required to report independently on operational conditions inside individual rooms as well as on machinery and working methods. Lighthouse distinguishes itself by delivering fully validated and customized measurement systems
For OR monitoring, it is important that users and management staff have insight into OR air quality, before, during and after procedures. Historical data are also important when analyzing air quality. Data can be presented on touchscreens, both inside and outside the ORs, with all the desired parameters (also from connected systems, such as those of medical gases).
Independent monitoring system
Why use an independent monitoring system, in addition to a Building Management System?FIND OUT MORE
VCCN guideline 7 classification OR
This is a guideline which describes the method to test and classify operating rooms at rest. The new WIP and VCCN (RL-7) guidelines indicate various parameters that are important for the correct air quality in operating rooms (ORs).
Particle measurements in the OR
In addition to annual validations of operating rooms, the standards also must be monitored continuously, to insure that information on air quality within operating rooms is available particularly during surgical procedures.FIND OUT MORE
Storage and distribution
Stringent climate control standards apply to the storage and distribution of critical products, such as medication and blood plasma. This, for example, concerns their storage in refrigerators and freezers in dispensaries, laboratories and other areas throughout the hospital. The Lighthouse monitoring system can be used to monitor this equipment, among other things with respect to temperature and humidity. If required, the system can also issue alerts when doors are being opened.
Monitoring within the dispensary
Depending on the activities of the dispensary, the monitoring system must comply with good manufacturing practice (GMP) standards. Whether monitoring is required also depends on medication preparation and storage within the pharmacy.FIND OUT MORE
The production of pharmaceutical radionuclide (Isotopes) takes place in a Cyclotron. The preparation and packaging of a full radiopharmaceutical needs to be done in a “Hot Cell” and needs to comply to the GMP can be equipped with a real-time monitoring system for monitoring particles and differential pressure.
Monitoring of Laboratories
Most hospitals contain clinical-chemical, medical-microbiological, pharmaceutical-toxicological and pathology laboratories to examine blood, urine, feces, sputum and tissue.
The monitoring of air-technical aspects as well as particles and pathogens when these examinations are being conducted is important, as is the monitoring of the storage of these materials in refrigerators, freezers and other equipment.
The air quality of the Central Sterilization Unit is very important, as here all instruments and materials that are for example needed in operating rooms are being prepared. Particles, bacteria (CFU), pressure differential, temperature, and humidity, therefore, are the main monitoring parameters.
The LMS monitoring system can also be applied to ensure proper monitoring and registration of pressure differential, temperature, and humidity in isolation rooms. The advantage of this system is that the required alert values can be set centrally, and local displays at isolation rooms can be viewed to see whether all rooms comply with the isolation regimes.
