Health care facilities and hospitals have more stringent circuit protection requirements than conventional building electrical systems. Because of the unique constraints of health care facility electrical systems, design engineers must ensure these demanding requirements are met. However, codes adopted in many jurisdictions don’t provide a significant amount of guidance regarding feeder and branch circuit design for health care facilities. Engineers must understand and apply circuit protection best practices especially when designing electrical systems in health care facilities.
