Extension Cords Now Allowed in Hospitals

Tripp Lite, a world-leading manufacturer of power protection and connectivity solutions, has introduced five new hospital-grade power extension cords that meet the most current standards.

The adoption by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) of the 2012 edition of the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) 101 – Life Safety Code (LSC) and NFPA 99 – Health Care Facilities Code (HCFC) defines the allowable use of extension cords. It is now possible for clinics, hospitals, long-term care facilities and other health care entities to extend the length of existing hospital-grade power cords using hospital-grade extension cords, when used correctly within specifications of the code.

The new compliant extension cords from Tripp Lite are tested to ANSI/UL 62 and 817 and CAN/CSA C22.2 no. 21 and 49 specifications to ensure safe, reliable power in health care environments. The cords feature hospital-grade plugs and receptacles and are available in lengths of 2 ft., 6 ft. and 15 ft.
