AHCA – Medical Equipment Drawings

Facility name: UCF Lake Nona Medical Center

Project name: Lake Nona-102018M- New Hospital
Location: TALLAHASSEE, FL
Project classification: Hospital – New

Lesson Learned number: 150
Impact: Cost


Lesson Learned/Best Practice

AHCA requirements for Imaging equipment varies with each “team”. Typically, the specific details required by AHCA are not included in the site specific vendor drawings resulting in added scope and rework during the inspection process.


Suggested Actions for Future Projects

Medical Equipment vendors should incorporate known AHCA requirements for each specific team in the vendor documents for the project.

POU Cabinets near Door Openings

Facility name: UCF Lake Nona Medical Center

Project name: Lake Nona-102018M- New Hospital
Location: TALLAHASSEE, FL
Project classification: Hospital – New
Project type: Acute Care
Project number: 2689500001
Lesson Learned number: 124
Impact: Quality


Lesson Learned/Best Practice

POU cabinets are typically shown at doorways to clean supply rooms. When these are installed, they often conflict with the door swing pathway when the POU cabinet is open.


Suggested Actions for Future Projects

POU cabinet locations should be reviewed by design team and contractor to confirm these locations do not conflict with the door swing.

Planning Book Scope Details

Facility name: Medical Equipment Lessons Learned

Project name: Medical Equipment Lessons Learned
Location: ,
Project classification:
Project type: Other
Project number: 0000000000
Lesson Learned number: 8
Impact: Scope


Lesson Learned/Best Practice

Planning books should thoroughly describe the type of space that is included in the scope of the project i.e. Is the Major OR either Ortho or Neuro not just a Major OR.  Is the ICU regular ICU or Neuro ICU etc.  The equipment needed to support each of these spaces is quite different and has a big impact from a budgeting standpoint.


Suggested Actions for Future Projects

The planning books should be as detailed as possible when describing the type of space included in the scope of the project.  This will save time on the ME Managers part and eliminate the need to seek clarification from planning.

Site Visits on Renovation Projects

Facility name: Medical Equipment Lessons Learned

Project name: Medical Equipment Lessons Learned
Location: ,
Project classification:
Project type: Other
Project number: 0000000000
Lesson Learned number: 7
Impact: Cost


Lesson Learned/Best Practice

Any project that includes a renovation component, the AVP of MEM will review scope of the project with ME Manager to determine if an onsite visit to review proejct details and assess existing medical equipment would be beneficial.


Suggested Actions for Future Projects

When planning books are issued ME Manager would visit with AVP to discuss project scope and whether an onsite visit and assessment of existing equipment should be done prior to submitting a budget.
