    Abstract

    For this project the Post-Commissioning process was implemented in the air conditioning equipment located at the Clínica Universitaria Bolivariana (CUB) of the Universidad Pontificia Bolivariana, Medellín, Colombia. The equipment available in the institution, must comply with all the stipulations of the American Society of Engineering, Heating, Refrigerating and Air Conditioning (ASHRAE) for these areas, and must comply with all the requirements of air quality that apply to clinics and hospitals. These rules are necessary and although in Colombia are not obligatory, its compliance should be applied, as clinics and hospitals are considered high-risk areas of infection, and its compliance is intended to prevent the spread and growth of microorganisms potentially pathogenic for patients, visitors or people working in the company. All the work performed established that the current state of equipment available in the institution, based on the information obtained from the interventions made during the equipment maintenance in the last twelve months; with this information it is possible to display an overview of compliances or non-compliances of the legal requirements established for this purpose and to be able to generate improvement plans in the institution.
