General

The minimum number and general arrangement of receptacles in patient care areas should be as specified in Table 6. Additional receptacles and circuits shall be provided for equipment placed in a patient care environment more or less permanently (e.g., patient monitors and bedside computer terminals). When a non-medical computer communications outlet and power receptacle are provided in a patient care area, the receptacle shall be located outside the patient care environment and carefully positioned and identified so that it cannot be inadvertently used for equipment that will be connected to the patient. If the outlet and receptacle use isolated power, the receptacle shall not be connected to the patient care isolated power distribution system.

Note: Receptacles, other electronics and electrical services, and medical gas outlets are often provided using a medical supply unit (also known as a patient service module). See CAN/CSA-Z305.8 for requirements relating to medical supply units.
