Are cord multi-outlet strips, cord power strips an acceptable electrical means in healthcare facilities.
Nope. They are concidered a trip hazard. I worked in one for 4 years. We had 30 units in the ALF section and I went on a search and distroy mission once a month. ARCA is the inspection agency in Florida. They came in once a year.
From the UL White Book (XBYS), page 402 in the '09 copy.
"Relocatable power taps have not been investigated and are not intended for use with general patient care areas or critical patient care areas of health care facilities as defined in Article 517 of ANSI/NFPA 70, ??National Electrical Code.??
