For medical facilities, emergency power plans are a matter of life or death.
When an outage occurs at a hospital, urgent care, or other medical facility, the effects can be life-threatening. Vital services and equipment like medical ventilators, incubators, and dialysis machines rely on electricity to function—and patients rely on them to survive. Loss of HVAC, water pressure, sterilization technology, and refrigeration capabilities can also be devastating for medical facilities.
We’ve talked about preventing power failure in hospitals and assisted living facilities previously, but it’s important to know the impact of a worse-case scenario.
