Embrace the Power of Redundancy: Backup Power in Healthcare Facilities

Imagine a scenario where a power outage occurs during a critical surgery or a crucial medical procedure. The consequences could be catastrophic, compromising patient safety and well-being. This is where backup power systems step in to save the day.20180111_095018

Investing in reliable backup power solutions, such as uninterruptible power supply (UPS) systems and emergency generators, ensures continuous electricity supply during unforeseen blackouts. These systems not only protect patients during procedures but also safeguard the integrity of sensitive biomedical materials, such as vaccines and test samples, which require stable temperature conditions for preservation.


Prioritize Patient Safety: A Core Principle for Streamlined Care

At the heart of every surgery center lies a commitment to patient safety. Streamlining outpatient care begins with adhering to stringent safety protocols and best practices. Thoroughly train and regularly update your staff on safety procedures to minimize errors and enhance patient outcomes.Vascular-Surgery

Additionally, employing advanced technologies and automated systems for medication dispensing and patient monitoring can significantly reduce the risk of adverse events and improve overall efficiency.


Optimize Workflow and Resource Management

But, once the power goes out, the clock starts.power-fluctuation

Battery backup systems offer instant and automatic power for both medical equipment and laboratory appliances alike. No staff needs to be on-site to monitor or start the generator. Valuable samples and inventory will stay safe without any extra effort.

Their shape is vertical like a cabinet, and their batteries don't leak. This means they can fit into small spaces and be positioned in any way. 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. It does so via the outlet its already plugged into.

No matter what system you choose, it will protect your biomedical and chemical samples from power loss. It guarantees a smooth switch from utility power to backup power, avoiding temperature excursions.

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: runtime

  • 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.

At Mediproducts, we provide you with all the help you need to keep up with NFPA 99 changes, including all relevant local and regional standards.
