The Hospital installation is an essential part for patients who rely on appliances in order to survive or breathe properly. Also, several pieces of equipment in the ICU rooms, as well as other tools such as dialysis and radiology machines, amongst others, are essential for the operation of the hospital, so there can be no electrical failure in any sector.
Electrical installations in hospitals: what do you need to know?
It is mandatory that the electrical installation in hospitals have a battery pack, breaker systems, power generators, duplicate power supplies for selected equipment, and electrical power distribution panels. Besides these details, others also need to be mentioned, check them out!
Which are the areas that need the most attention?
According to the specific hospital infrastructure standards, the sectors that need the most attention and cannot have any power failure or interruption are the ICU, delivery, endoscopy, urology, radiology, anesthesia, surgery, plaster, postoperative, hemodialysis, resonance and pediatric and cardiology rooms.
The maximum time a piece of a hospital equipment can run out of electricity is 0.5 seconds. If this time passes, the device might turn itself off, which might cause irreparable damages to the patients. Another factor to be considered is that some pieces of electronic equipment are more sensitive to disturbance and interference than others. Therefore, the need for a big support in order to maintain the power quality and constant is essential for them to properly function.
Why is grounding in hospitals so important?
In addition to being indispensable for any electrical system, grounding in hospitals is very important since it fixes an energy potential between conductors, eliminates the incidence of shocks and electrical discharges, as well as it protects the system in case of insulation failures.
Maintenance is very important
Keeping the electrical installation in hospitals up to date is very important in order to prevent accidents. Worn wires and cables, wires and cables that are visible, loose, which smell badly as though burnt and cause some tools to fail need urgent maintenance.
Having a specialized maintenance team that knows how to work in hospitals and medical centers is a great unique feature, because no details would be left out.
