Per requirements listed in NFPA 99, electrical receptacles, especially those found in wet locations, are required to be tested at regular intervals. Inspections are required to verify the following items;
General condition of the outlet
Let LSE save your staff the time and trouble to locate and test these receptacles. We will help you develop a testing program that fits your compliance needs.
As with all of our inspection programs, each receptacle will be bar code tagged and added to an inventory list. All inspection results will be provided on detailed reports and will be accompanied by work orders as needed.
Code Blue Relays
Sometimes, life and death outcomes in hospitals are dependant on the push of a button.
Code Blue incidents typically include patients who are unresponsive or are in cardiac or respiratory distress. In these situations, the first responder is required to alert the staff of needed assistance by pressing the “Code Blue Button”.
"What happens if it does not work?"
"What if the alert indicates the wrong room or area?"
To avoid these scenarios, it is imperative the buttons and their relays are monitored and tested for integrity. While there are currently no prescriptive requirements for testing, accrediting agencies still expect them to work.
Programs should be designed based on historical data. Let our experience help you put together a program that best suits the needs of your facility.
