TAKE CARE WHEN USING POWER STRIPS

According to a recent article by Max Hauth, noted Long Term Care Facility safety expert, power strips may not be used in the Patient Care Vicinity (PCV). The PCV is defined as that location for the examination and treatment of patients/residents that is six feet beyond the device supporting the patient, whether bed, chair or exam table, and 7.5 feet above the floor. This means power strips may not be used within the PCV to power non-patient-care electrical equipment such as personal electronic devices.
