In complicated situations there can be no power failure

Generators in hospitals. What do you need to be aware of?, Agresa

Generators in hospitals are indispensable. As the saying goes, prevention is better than regrets. The cost of a blackout of a few minutes in a hospital is difficult to quantify, both in economic and human terms. The consequences are likely to lead to a host of problems that are difficult to solve. The most important thing is to ensure the safety and well-being of patients at all times. Hospitals and emergency centres require infallible generators; they need an emergency supply that guarantees electricity in the event of a mains failure.

What depends on the electrical network in a hospital?

  • Operation of surgical teams and operating theatres

  • Patient monitoring 

  • Patients’ electronic medication systems 

  • Radiology and other test rooms

  • Light and electrical systems in all rooms and wards of the hospital

In the case of a cut in the electricity distribution network, the generators must offer all the guarantees that they will start in the shortest possible time so that the activity in operating rooms, test benches, laboratories or hospitalization plants is not affected.

The well-being of patients is always above all else

Generators in hospitals. What do you need to be aware of?, Agresa

The well-being of the patients is the most important thing in any health centre, so different aspects must be taken into account when it comes time to choose a generator.  Given the sensitivity of hospital spaces, Agresa carries out a rigorous study with each project of the soundproofing needs of the generating sets, as well as of the rooms in which the equipment is installed, in order to guarantee that acoustic emissions are reduced to the minimum expression.

On the other hand, the hospitals have a protocol to ensure that the generators are maintained in optimum condition and suitable for use at any time. The main objective is to secure electricity when the general supply is interrupted by a fault. This is a monthly preventive maintenance carried out by technicians from the same hospital and a much more complete one, carried out by specialised companies once or twice a year.
