The Benefit of Gasless Generators for Healthcare Facilities

In today's fast-paced world, reliable power supply is crucial for the smooth functioning of every service, including healthcare. Medical practices, in particular, rely on consistent electricity to ensure patient care, maintain critical equipment, ensure life-saving procedures.

However, power outages and brownouts can occur at anytime, jeopardizing patient safety and overall operations. This is where battery backup power systems, such as gasless generators (also called Battery Backup Generators or UPS systems), emerge as a reliable solution. In this article, we will explore the benefits of battery backup power systems for medical practices, highlighting the significance of gasless generators in ensuring uninterrupted healthcare.



Reliability and Redundancy

Battery backup power systems offer a reliable and redundant source of electricity during blackouts or power failures. Unlike traditional gas generators that require fuel and periodic maintenance, gasless generators rely on batteries to deliver power. This eliminates the need for fuel storage, and any space or safety concerns, making them the safer, more greener option. With gasless generators, medical practices can ensure seamless operations, even during extended power outages, eliminating the risks associated with critical care and medical equipment failure.


Continuous Patient Care

Uninterrupted power supply is essential to maintaining patient care and safety. Many medical procedures and equipment, such as life support systems, ventilators, dialysis machines, and incubators, heavily depend on electricity. In emergency situations, a sudden power disruption can have life-threatening consequences.

Battery backup power systems act as a lifeline, allowing healthcare providers to continue delivering crucial care without interruptions. By safeguarding the availability of essential medical equipment, gasless generators enable medical professionals to provide continuous monitoring, support, and treatment, ensuring the well-being of their patients.

Preserving Medications and Vaccines

The reliable storage and preservation of medications and vaccines are crucial for medical practices. Many medications, especially vaccines, require specific temperature ranges to remain effective. Power outages can compromise the integrity of refrigeration units, jeopardizing the potency of medications.

Battery backup systems with smart monitoring capabilities can provide a stable power supply to refrigeration units, preventing spoilage and ensuring the availability of critical medications. This is particularly vital for medical practices involved in vaccine distribution, where maintaining proper storage conditions is paramount for public health.


Data Integrity and Electronic Health Records (EHR)

In today's digitized healthcare landscape, electronic health records (EHR) play a vital role in patient care and recordkeeping. Power disruptions can lead to data loss, compromising patient records and creating operational challenges. Battery backup power systems protect medical practices from such risks by providing uninterrupted power to servers, computer systems, and networking infrastructure.

With a reliable power source, healthcare providers can maintain data integrity, ensuring accurate and accessible patient information, seamless workflows, and effective communication within the medical team.


Emergency Preparedness and Disaster Response

Natural disasters, such as hurricanes, earthquakes, or severe weather conditions, can disrupt power supply for extended periods. During these challenging times, medical practices need to be well-prepared to handle emergencies and provide critical care to affected individuals.

Battery backup power systems, including gasless generators, offer an excellent solution to ensure emergency preparedness. By having a reliable power source, medical facilities can continue to function, support emergency procedures, and provide essential healthcare services to affected communities. The ability to respond promptly and effectively in such situations can make a significant difference in saving lives and minimizing the impact of disasters.



The importance of uninterrupted power supply cannot be overstated in the context of medical practices. Battery backup power systems, particularly gasless generators, provide an innovative and reliable solution to ensure continuous patient care, safeguard critical medical equipment, preserve medications and vaccines, protect electronic health records, and enhance emergency preparedness.

Steps for Protecting Patients due to Power Outages

Once the power goes out, the clock starts and temperatures begin to rise.

Battery backup systems offer instant and automatic power for both medical equipment and laboratory appliances alike. As a result, no staff needs to be on-site to keep track of or start the generator, plus, valuable samples and inventory will remain safe—with no extra work required. This makes them an ideal solution for a vaccine coordinator looking to ensure inventory remains safe.

Additionally, their vertical, cabinet-like form factor and leak-proof batteries mean they can be installed in even the tightest spaces and oriented in anyway to make them fit. Meaning now matter how crowded your vaccine or sample room is, you can ensure you'll be protected.

Plus, if your lab or storage room is truly tight on space, a hardwired backup power unit can instantly supply remote power to your appliance—directly via the outlet its already plugged into.

Regardless of what kind of system is the best fit, they ensure that your entire stock of biomedical and chemical samples are protected from a sudden loss of power (and the resulting temperature fluctuations) by guaranteeing a seamless transition from utility power to backup power.

And for Facilities who perform outpatient operations, battery power instantly engages, keeping your operations going with zero downtime due to their advanced battery technology.

Even better, is that battery generators can be outfitted with as much power as you want. So system’s can be designed with enough power to protect a facility’s inventory: 

  • Overnight
  • All day
  • Over a weekend
  • Or even for a whole week.

So, to protect your facility from tens of thousands of dollars in lost inventory speak to a Medi-Products battery backup expert.

They’ll help design you a system that both meets your power needs and will fit inside your facility—for a much lower cost than what your vaccines are worth. So a backup power system pays for itself the first time your power goes out.

Designing a system for you is as easy as taking a picture of your appliance’s nameplate, and a photo of the room where it’s in.

Then, you just email both photos to our Product experts, and we’ll provide you with multiple options for backup power protection.
