Bender explores how they tackled electrical problems with existing IPC panels in the operating room while in quarantine through retrofit of new LIMs, remote testing and commissioning services for hospitals in Alberta. The resulting actions improved operations within the ORs and reduced downtime due to nuisance alarms caused by obsolete LIMs on the existing panels. With the new LIM installed, the hospital ORs met their CSA Z32 standard recommendations and CE code requirements.

Key Topics Covered

  • Brief intro to IPC panels and their importance in operational availability and safety in critical care areas
  • Challenges faced with quarantine and how they were overcome through remote installation, testing and commissioning.
  • The importance of regular maintenance of IPC panels and their associated LIMs
