This subject is an approach to know how to apply quality control and safety plans in medical devices and in all processes for the maintenance of electromedical equipment and hospital infrastructures, taking into account current regulations on risk prevention labor and environmental protection. COMPETENCES THAT THE STUDENT ACQUIRES WITH THIS MATTER CB6 Possess and understand knowledge that provides a base or opportunity to be original in the development and / or application of ideas CB7 That students know how to apply the knowledge acquired and their ability to solve problems in new or unfamiliar environments within broader (or multidisciplinary) contexts related to their area of study CB8 That students are able to integrate knowledge and face the complexity of formulating judgments based on information that, being incomplete or limited, includes reflections on social and ethical responsibilities linked to the application of their knowledge and judgments CB9 That students know how to communicate their conclusions and the knowledge and ultimate reasons that sustain them to specialized and non-specialized audiences in a clear and unambiguous way CB10 That students have the learning skills that allow them to continue studying in a way that will be largely autonomous. CG3 Ability to design and carry out technological projects in the field of the application of engineering to medicine, as well as to analyze and interpret their results. CE13 Ability to plan, manage and supervise hospital infrastructures under quality criteria, in safety conditions and complying with current regulations. LEARNING RESULTS THAT THE STUDENT ACQUIRES In overcoming this subject, students should be able to: Accomplish the regulation for of occupational risks prevention and environmental protection, identifying the associated risks, the measures and the equipment to prevent them. Plan and manage the treatment generated waste in a hospital, identifying the polluting agents and describing their effects on the environment. Apply quality plans in all the processes carried out and supervised, describing the quality assurance and management regulations. Analyze and evaluate the working conditions and the risk factors present in the hospital environment. Apply prevention and protection measures, analyzing risk situations in the hospital environment. Recognize the main risks of the patient's environment in a health center, describing their characteristics and their repercussion.
