DFW Metro area plumbers, North Texas Plumbing is advising local medical services providers on how to vet and hire the right commercial plumber for their medical gas plumbing installation, maintenance, and repair needs.
Medical gas plumbing is a niche within the plumbing industry and requires specialized knowledge to deliver the reliable services that medical providers and facilities expect. Medical gas is an umbrella term for a wide range of gaseous compounds that are essential to modern medical procedures. Today, a medical services provider cannot build infrastructure that serves to support and heal patients in an in-patient setting, without being able to provide a continuous supply of medical gases.
The gases and gaseous mixtures that are pumped through medical facilities serve many purposes. Some are life-saving, such as oxygen and medical air, because of their ability to meet a struggling patient’s respiratory needs. This has proven to be especially important since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic which is a disease that affects the lungs and impedes one’s ability to breathe. Nitrous oxide is used for its anesthetic qualities. Nitrogen and medical vacuum power or support pneumatic surgical equipment.
All of the widely used medical gases have strict requirements on the pressure and temperature they should be pumped at, to serve their intended medical purpose. The supply of medical gases should also be reliable because any discontinuation or erratic supply would mean that the patient at the other end of the facility could suffer serious, or even fatal, consequences.
The need for having detailed knowledge of plumbing infrastructure as well as the additional awareness of the chemistry of medical gases makes being a medical plumber a job with a high entry threshold. Medical gas piping specialists also have to be high-performing professionals who have demonstrated a serious work ethic and are cognizant of the consequences that a failure on the job site can mean. Moreover, plumbers even have to stay abreast of local laws and regulations that dictate the standard that medical gas installations should meet in their state, county, or city.
Master Plumber, and owner of North Texas Plumbing, Marc Sims talks about how to pick the best medical plumber by saying, “Calling oneself a medical gas plumber is not one of those nebulous titles that you get in other industries, regardless of your skill, knowledge, or experience. This is a strictly regulated niche within an industry that is also known for demanding high standards of quality from its workers. So, the first thing you need to check and get assurance for is whether the plumbing company’s employees are certified to deliver the services that they claim to have expertise in. In Texas, the Texas State Board of Plumbing Examiners (TSBPE) has specified that the Medical Gas Piping Installation Endorsement may be added to a Master Plumber, Journeyman Plumber, or Plumbing Instructor License. To be eligible to take the examination that qualifies you for that certification, you should currently be licensed as a Master Plumber, Journeyman Plumber, or Plumbing Inspector in Texas and you should have completed a 24-hour training course approved by the TSBPE.
