NHS Induction Loop Maintenance
Existing induction loop systems
Often we find that existing induction loop systems at reception desk or in rooms located around the hospital are not working at all or not working to current standards. Some induction loop system installations are now in excess of 20 years old. During this time the loop has had a fair amount of wear and tear. A fault could be as simple as the induction loop pad not secured in place to its original working position.
With our induction loop maintenance scheme we are able to offer a maintenance service for all existing induction loop systems. Our aim is to repair/replace all faulty equipment set up the loop output to the correct level to comply with standards.
What does this entail?
We will need a detailed list of all of the induction loop systems installed throughout the hospital. If required, we can meet with the estates manager and be escorted to all induction loop positions/sites. Where up on we will test/repair and set up the induction loop system. If the existing induction loop system is beyond economical repair we can replace the faulty item whilst on site or send a report/estimate to the estates manager by email.
When we have all the induction loop systems working we can train a hospital staff technician how to use a loop test meter. The technician can then test each individual induction loop system, check each component is in place and in good working order on a designated periodic basis i.e. (once a month). The training will enable the technician to fault find and order the necessary replacement component.
We can provide staff training on how an induction loop system works in conjunction with a hearing aid and a brief outline on deaf awareness. This will make staff more confident when using the induction loop system and will ease communication between the staff and hearing impaired patient.
Induction loop testing
A meter that has loop output level indicators must be used on a periodic basis to comply with the Disability Discrimination Act.
