Your hospital is one of the largest power consumers on the grid, with the most to lose in the event of brownouts or blackouts. Patients' lives hang in the balance if a hospital was to lose power, even for a second. Critical systems, including life support, surgical monitors, CCTV monitors, and security systems rely on an unterrupted supply of power. Downtime is simply not an option.
When working through the necessities of your hospital, battery backups and redundant circuitry is a must. If circuits pop due to power surges, secondary circuits and power sources can still provide power to critical components of your healthcare facility. By having network monitors installed, small in-room UPS systems, or interrupted power supplies, facility wide backups will be able to keep your systems up and running.
Power supply is critical for hospitals and ICU, but also assisted living facilities, outpatient care, and more. A few critical areas are listed below:
- Recovery monitoring
- Operating rooms
- Exam rooms
- Surgical rooms
- ICU and life support
- Delivery rooms
- Newborn / infant care
- Patient care / waiting room areas
- Patient security
- Medical records
- CCTV monitoring
and more.
