Lesson Learned/Best Practice

AHCA requires that any OR space that does not have medical gas on the surgical boom must have the med gas outlets “convenient to the bed”. (within 6′) If the center of the bed does not fall within this 6′, a med gas pedestal must be added at the center of the room.

Suggested Actions for Future Projects

Any OR project in the state of Florida where a surgical boom is installed without med gas, special consideration should be given to incorporating a med gas pedestal.
