Validatie van Bedpanspoelers

Validation of bedpan rinsers

INTRODUCTION

Preventing cross-contamination is very important in every healthcare institution. So you must be able to trust that the cleaning and disinfection processes of your bedpan rinser(s) are always in perfect order. You should therefore have the rinsing machine validated periodically. Bureau Veritas can carry out this validation accurately on your behalf.

Bureau Veritas' Validation & Monitoring department was established in 1985 from Krachtwertuigen (Kwant) and later KW2. Due to our extensive experience involving process validations, you are assured of a professionally executed procedure. And with our team of ten highly skilled validation technicians, we can plan flexibly.

SCOPE

We validate bedpan rinsers in the medical sector when required or desired.

STANDARD CONTENT

ISO15883-1 and 3 standards apply when validating bedpan rinsers.

VALIDATION PROCESS

What does the validation process look like? First, we draw up an audit plan with you as a client/user. Important focus points included in this plan:

  • the applicable standard
  • the type of device (make, type, age, status, size etc.)
  • load bearing
  • the processes.

In consultation with you, we also determine at this stage when the validation takes place.

Our validation technician takes measurements during the cleaning process and assesses the measurement results according to the applicable standards. Afterwards, the technician will discuss the results with you, and you will receive a preliminary assessment. Within twenty working days, you will receive a final report with all findings and conclusions.

ACCREDITATION

Bureau Veritas' Validation & Monitoring department is accredited as an ISO/IEC17020 type A inspection body. This means the validation we perform is completely independent. In addition, our validations are periodically assessed by the Dutch Accreditation Council (RvA - Raad voor Accreditatie) and by various certification bodies. On the RvA website, you will find the scope of the work areas for which we are accredited.

ADDITIONAL STANDARDS

Instead of the default standards, a client can also opt for its own validation plan, which deviates or goes beyond the applicable standards. A review condition is that the plan refers to those standards, or that the assessment requirements have been fully recorded.
