Background: Medical gas management system in the healthcare industry must be regu­lated to capture any potential risk imposed. The number of medical gases required in a hospital must be estimated accurately. Otherwise, it may affect the quality of health ser­vice in the hospital. This stu­dy aimed to evaluate the medical gas management sys­tem and to identify potential risk in a hospital. This evaluation process was expected to help reduce the number of unwanted events, especially in medical gas installations.

The data were collected by observation of medical gas installation follo­wed by detailed interview with the chief, management staff, and logistic report docu­men­tation staff of medical gas installation.

Results: The management of medical gas in the hospitals was not effective or efficient due to a number of hospitals in Bekasi were still using conventional medical gas cylin­ders. In addition, medical gas management was lacking in operational fund and human resources.
