IMPORTANT INFORMATION FOR OUR AAPM MEMBERS


ENSURING THE SAFETY OF PATIENTS AND COWORKERS


ENSURING TESTING REQUIREMENTS ARE MET

At present, many healthcare facilities have greatly limited access to their facilities. We are hearing from members that some have been denied access to equipment needing performance testing, such as to meet regulatory or accreditation requirements, including after equipment has been serviced.

In response, AAPM has communicated with a number of organizations requesting extensions to the frequency requirements for such testing. We will update this site as we learn of such extensions being put in place. If you are aware of an extension that is not on this list, such as in your state, please email that information so that we can update this list.

Requests to defer testing required by state regulations should be directed to the appropriate state agency, who may require facility-specific requests for a variance to be submitted. We will include information about any state-wide extensions, variances, or exceptions if we are provided a link to an official statement from the state.
