White paper on power strips in healthcare facilities available

A white paper that warns of the misuse of power strips in hospitals and offers guidance to avoid common mistakes that can result in citations, fines or patient injury was recently released by Tripp Lite. 

The paper titled, “Power Strip Safety & Regulatory Compliance: A Comprehensive Guide to Utilizing Power Strips in Healthcare Facilities,” discusses common power strip mistakes made in healthcare facilities and ways to avoid them. 

It also advises how to develop and implement a general power strip policy to provide guidance on facility compliance with codes and standards, while reducing risk to patients and staff.

“One of the biggest takeaways from this white paper is the fact that power strips will be used in hospitals; it’s inevitable and surveyors know that,” said Molly Jantzen, Tripp Lite's global director of healthcare sales and marketing, and author of the white paper.

“Surveyors are not looking for whether hospitals use power strips or not; they are looking for proper power strip usage. This guide explains the steps needed to encourage compliant usage.”

“A strategic plan is critical," Jantzen said."Compliant power strip technology exists in the marketplace today. So long as that technology is applied and installed properly, nothing stands between you and accessible power facility-wide.”
