303.6 AED equipment.
(a) Prior to purchasing AEDs and related equipment, and based upon the provisions of its AED program plan, each State agency should determine the appropriate number of AEDs and should recruit or assign sufficient AED operators for each of its public buildings. Purchase of AED units shall be made pursuant to the State Finance Law or other applicable governing law.
(b) Each AED shall be a device approved by the Food and Drug Administration for adult use and/or for pediatric use, as appropriate for the population reasonably anticipated to be served by such device, and shall be installed and used according to the manufacturers instructions with due attention provided to operating procedures, maintenance and expiration date(s). AEDs are federally regulated medical devices, and can only be purchased with a physician's prescription. Such physician's prescription should be obtained from the agency's EHCP.
(c) Each agency shall have the AEDs placed in their assigned locations within each of the agency's facilities and shall ensure that trained AED operators for each facility are informed as to the locations of the AEDs. Manufacturers' directions should be followed for all AED installations and use.
(d) All AED coordinators, or their designees, shall use their reasonable best efforts to provide that all AEDs in their facilities shall be maintained and inspected according to agency policy, manufacturers' and applicable Federal and State government standards.
(e) All AED coordinators, or their designees, shall use their reasonable best efforts to perform or otherwise arrange for an inspection, on a regular basis not less frequently than recommended by the AED manufacturer, to check the AED supplies, accessories and spares for expiration dates and damage, and test the functionality of each AED. Such inspection should include the AED exterior and the connector.
