    Nec 517.10

    Does part II of article 517 apply to medical exam rooms in Doctors' Clinic/Offices, and therefore, all receptacles have to be "hospital grade"?
    Thank you.

    HG receptacles only have to used in Patient Bed Locations, and yes part II does apply to exam rooms in doctors offices and clinics.
