It’s no secret that data, power, and AV are make-or-break services within a healthcare facility. If poor reliability or lack of electrical-device durability cause a failure in a school or office, it’s a major productivity buster (and very inconvenient) – but it’s manageable.
In a healthcare environment, however, this downtime can literally mean the difference between life and death. The devices and technology that doctors, nurses, and staff members use today to care for, monitor, and track patients are vital and must offer peak performance reliability without interruption for 24/7 communication and care.
Healthcare environments are unique for another reason, too: They house many different types of spaces under one roof. Power, data, and AV are needed in all kinds of places, from exam rooms, operating rooms, and physical therapy areas to conference rooms, nurses’ stations, food service areas, and labs.
To ensure safety, reliability, and performance in these environments, Hubbell Wiring Device-Kellems is committed to offering electrical devices for healthcare environments. When we design and manufacture a solution for a hospital, medical center, or long-term care facility, it must be:
- Hospital-grade and designed with additional strength, integrity and grounding reliability
- Safe for patients, visitors, and healthcare clinicians to ensure protection of people and property
- Efficient to install, keeping projects on track and minimizing disruption to care
- Energy efficient to help healthcare facilities stretch their dollars and minimize environmental impact
- Durable to withstand abrupt removals and insertions, impact from carts and beds, and repeated exposure to harsh disinfectants
To help you find electrical devices for healthcare environments without worry, Hubbell Wiring Device-Kellems has put together some valuable resources to connect you to the right solutions faster.
