Bayhealth Engineering Supports Ventilator Refurbishment

Bayhealth’s Clinical Engineering (CE) department is supporting Bloom Energy with its refurbishment of hundreds of ventilators for the State of Delaware.

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic and as the nation faces a critical shortage of ventilators, Bloom is refurbishing the thousands of out-of-service ventilators available in the United States.

“We are working with state agencies and customers – many of which are hospitals and medical device companies – to identify supplies of unused, out-of-service ventilators,” said officials from Bloom Energy. 

According to Bayhealth Clinical Engineering Technician III Matt Burritt, CBET, some Bloom Energy employees brought a couple of the ventilators to Bayhealth and then he and other CE team members taught them how to use the equipment that tests the devices to make sure they’re working properly.

“It’s nice to be a part of something that could help a lot of people and also to help the state,” said Burritt. “It was very rewarding to be part of that process.”

The project began at the beginning of the week and the ventilators were back to the state’s warehouse by the weekend.
