Power Cords in the OR

OtherSide Taking Time to Care

O

ne would think that everyone working in healthcare is compassionate and caring, and I see examples of this everyday: A stranger helping another stranger in a time of need or crisis. However, at times, I also observe healthcare workers who seem to not care very much at all. What I believe happens is that because we repeatedly see the same problems and issues, we become indifferent. We forget that each new patient may be experiencing the treatment for the first time. I think that this also happens to biomedical technicians, which, if we’re not careful, could jeopardize our own existence. I’m still surprised every time I hear statements like, “They need to learn how to take better care of their equipment” or “That’s not my job.” Recently, I’ve heard my colleagues in the industry utter these phrases more frequently. I really don’t understand the angst; technicians should realize that if our customers knew everything about their equipment, they wouldn’t need us. I especially don’t understand it when I hear techs complain about that “stupid five-minute fix.” Personally, I think those making such statements should be thankful; they scored an easy win. Without problems, we have nothing to fix. It’s no secret that equip-

Do Does anyone know of any regulation for lengthening power cords on ope operating-room (OR) equipment? Ou Our nurse manager wants longer pow power cords wired into existing equ equipment. That way, they can all be plugged into receptacles on one wa wall. But, are extension cords a better alternative? All comments and sug suggestions are welcome.

ment continues to become more reliable, so what’s going to be left for us to do? Frankly, I don’t need a degreed technician to perform safety checks on equipment. Our paradigms about service need to start changing now. If not, I fear that soon there will be no need for biomedical technicians at all. I’ve been monitoring failures for a couple of years and I’ve noticed that the majority of problems are related to accessories and use. Granted, these failures lack the ability to test our technical abilities, but to the users they’re the same as any other problem. Therefore, we need to take them seriously and fix them for users in a kind and caring way. We need to remember that the users are trying to utilize the equipment on a patient. Again, all the patient knows is that the equipment didn’t function properly for them either. We need to expand our scope of service if we’re going to remain successful. I know a handful of managers – myself included – who tell their staff to do a tertiary look at anything the customer asks. I’ve seen my techs work on dancing Santa Clauses (for the hospital auxiliary,) a CD player, and even a few dietary heater control boards. I don’t know of a single group of people who has more skill than we do to solve just about any problem. There isn’t any

reason that we shouldn’t work on beds, surgical tables, nurse call, or even patient entertainment. We’re better suited to manage these devices than those who currently maintain them. However, that being said, there are still members of our industry who cling to the past and feel these items are beneath their skill set. In conclusion, we must never forget where we work; we’re healthcare professionals who have the opportunity to impact a stranger’s life in a positive way. Therefore, when we tell a nurse that we don’t fix something, we’re essentially telling a patient that we don’t care about them. To understand how our actions impact others, we must always connect the dots between the nurse and patient. I think that as an industry, we should start thinking about our future and what kind of service we’ll be left with as devices become smaller, cheaper and more reliable.

If you y consult the National Electrical Cod and Underwriters Laboratories, I beCode liev lieve you can lengthen all cords to 13 feet. (It m may be different; I don’t remember.) I wou would also use high-quality cordage and incr increase the wire gauge at least one step. T m To minimize the issue, an alternative solution is to permanently install outlet strips on aany cart in which equipment is fixed.

Ext Extension cords are a bad idea in the OR bec because of the presence of so much liq-

uid. I’ve seen the connector on an extension cord set off the LIM when it fell into a patch of water on the OR floor. Power-cord management will always be an ongoing problem in the OR, whether you have long power cords or not.

AIV sells 18-feet to 25-feet cords; we use them for the surgical tables. Any “extension” cords are made out of the weatherproof boxes that have the flip covers and are sealed to prevent any water-intrusion. These are made by our maintenance crew.

To eliminate extension cords at my last employer, we changed out many of the equipment cords with longer ones. The only regulations that I remember dealt with the amp capacity of the cord for the length and gauge size. It saved us a ton of problems. On some cart-mounted equipment, we shortened the cords and ran them to a cart-mounted, heavy-duty/hospital-grade

outlet strip. This reduced cord clutter.

I’ve seen a few cases where the local safety officer or the “authority having jurisdiction” flat-out banned “all” extension cords in the facility, but nothing at the National Fire Protection Agency-level. Did I miss something? Based on experience, my thoughts are that replacing existing cords with customsized, longer ones is preferred over using extension cords as long as the capacity and leakage currents are OK. That usually means one gauge higher than the original equipment manufacturer used (to minimize line drop), and leakage current is addressed on a case-by-case basis. Extension cords tend to “walk” and are prone to spills, as was previously mentioned. These posts are from Biomedtalk listserv.

IN AR ITS 12T H YE

Y Your Annuall Resource R Guide G id For F Medical Equipment and Services M The Medical Dealer Buyers Guide is the official guide for thousands of medical equipment companies. Think of it as the “Yellow Pages” for our industry. It is the ultimate resource for more than 20,000 qualified subscribers of the Medical Dealer, OR Today and TechNation magazines.

Since the day I started ISIS Medical Solutions, I have used a mass marketing campaign to get our name out. We have had an ad in the Medical Dealer every month since ISIS Medical Solutions was established. In addition, the Buyers Guide hits a large spectrum of people and we get even more bang for the buck. In my opinion, it’s a no brainer.

We have placed several banners on your website for many years now. When we jumped up to a larger homepage banner this year, our number of hits grew quickly and exponentially. Our banner ads with MD Publishing have been a direct-link to our company’s growth in 2009. We are excited to see what 2010 will bring!
