EQUIPMENT  Infusion  Pump  Preventative  Maintenance     Preventive  Maintenance  Checklist    Syringe  (IV)  pumps:  1. Examine  plug  and  line  cord.  2. Examine  internal  cables  and  connectors.  3. Verify  software  and  menu  settings  are  appropriate  for  clinical  application.  4. Examine  controls  and  switches  for  proper  function.  5. Verify  battery  chargers  and  indicators  are  working  6. Check  replacement  date  for  battery.  Replace  battery  if  necessary.  7. Confirm  lights,  indicators,  and  displays  are  working.  8. Verify  flow  stops  when  device  is  turned  off.  9. If  device  requires  the  IV  set  to  be  closed  before  it  is  disconnected,  verify  this  mechanism  is  operating.  10. Calibrate  machine  for  flow  rate.  11. Check  for  unusual  noise  or  vibration.  12. Run  self-­‐test,  if  equipped.  13. Lubricate  lead  screw,  gears,  and  other  moving  parts  as  required.  14. Measure  chassis  leakage  current  15. Measure  ground  resistance.  16. Test  audible  and  visual  alarms  and  indicators.    Feeding  pumps:  1. Clean  machine  and  chassis  of  any  enteral  solution  residue.  2. Examine  plug  and  line  cord.  3. Examine  internal  cables  and  connectors.  4. Verify  software  and  menu  settings.  5. Examine  controls  and  switches  for  proper  function.  6. Verify  battery  chargers  and  indicators  are  working.  7. Check  replacement  date  for  the  battery.    Replace  battery  if  necessary.  8. Confirm  lights,  indicators,  and  displays  are  working.  9. Verify  flow  stops  when  device  is  turned  off.  10. Calibrate  machine  for  flow  rate.  11. Check  for  unusual  noise  or  vibration.  12. Check  rollers  and  tubing  to  see  if  replacement  is  necessary.  13. Run  self-­‐test,  if  equipped.  14. Lubricate  any  rollers  or  actuators  as  necessary.  15. Measure  chassis  leakage  current.  16. Measure  ground  resistance  17. Test  audible  and  visual  alarms  and  indicators.
