Automated External Defibrillator
Changes to Criterion GP5.2 – Practice equipment
Your practice must have a defibrillator and there must be clear signs to indicate where it is.
The defibrillator in your practice :
- must be maintained according to the manufacturer’s instructions.
- it must be placed where it is clearly visible and accessible, and not exposed to extreme temperatures
So there is now no getting out of this one, you must have a defibrillator in the practice!
We would also like to discuss having the AED checked and tagged by external organisations – we have defibrillators that do NOT require this service, the manufacturer only recommends a monthly check and guess what – we have a monthly check-list in the pack for you.
Also our range of defibrillators conduct a self-check, so if there is a problem, the device will beep and let you know!
We have put together 3 options however, we recommend that you have the defibrillator displayed somewhere visible and accessible in the practice in a wall mounted display cabinet. This allows the non-clinical team to access this life saving device in a hurry.
