Surgery Center Accreditation Operating Room Temperature

Operating Room Temperatures

Adequate Operating Room Temperature


During your surgery center accreditation inspection you need to demonstrate and document that the operating room is adequately ventilated and the temperature is controlled between 68 and 72 degrees Fahrenheit.  Make sure you are logging the temperature and humidity of the operating room (s) each procedure day.  You also want to make sure you have an air-balance report of the air flow available for your inspection.  Air balance reports should be conducted bi-annually. 

 Here’s to your success
