In 2003, the northeastern part of the United States experienced a power outage that left eight states without power. Hospitals and healthcare facilities were not immune.

Power Dependency

Medical devices run on electricity. If the power goes out, emergency backup power systems are relied on to continue to keep operations going. This is true in hospitals, healthcare facilities, and even in-home care networks.

When blackouts occur, patients, staff, and doctors are affected in many ways. 

Consequences of a Blackout

Loss of HVAC systems
Loss of water pressure
Loss of lighting for necessary surgical procedures
Inability to sterilize instruments
Loss of respiratory devices and other critical equipment being utilized by patients
Inability to register patients and access electronic patient data
Loss of patient signaling system to ask for assistance from medical staff
Loss of elevator operation for transporting patients and supplies between floors
Inability to access medication, vaccines, and other medical supplies that required keyless entry 

Power Assurance

Regular maintenance of your uninterruptible power supply (UPS) system is a must. As part of this maintenance, testing backup batteries to determine state-of-health is critical to preventing power loss.

Battery analyzers allow you to test your UPS batteries so you can be confident that they will be ready to provide power in an emergency. Reduce risk and keep your patients and staff safe.
