Patient safety and power reliability are key concerns in any medical setting, whether it’s a hospital, doctors’ office or dental practice.
Hospital grade power cords need to be used whenever a piece of equipment has the potential to contact a patient.
If your project involves hospital-grade products, it’s essential to know the different medical standards and requirements.
Hospital-grade products in North American medical facilities need to adhere to UL and CSA standards.
- Attachment plug and receptacle standards – UL 498 and CAN/CSA C22.2 no 42.
- Medical equipment standards – UL 60601-1 and CAN/CS C22.2 no 21. (Sections 57.2 and 57.3 of UL 60601-1 says that patient care equipment used near patients must use hospital-grade attachment plugs.)
- Power supply cord standards – UL 817 and CAN/CSA C22.2 no 21
