The use of electrical equipment can be a potential hazard to both the therapist and the patient.
Utilize experts to conduct routine inspections to ensure that you meet or exceed all local, state, and federal operation standards.
Never use a piece of electrical equipment until you have a complete understanding of all aspects of its operation.
Have routine scheduled service on all electrical equipment at or before the manufacturerʼs suggested service dates.
Have repairs performed immediately after the identification of a potential problem.
Conduct routine inspections of all electrical equipment to identify potential problems.
Display electrical equipment operation manuals in an accessible location for staff members to use as a resource.
Ground-Fault Circuit Interrupter (GFCI) is a device designed to cut off electrical supply to a piece of equipment if it detects any form of leakage or ground-fault.
Ground-Fault Circuit Interrupter (GFCI) prevents a staff member or patient from becoming a ground-fault for electrical current resulting in harmful or deadly injuries.
Electrical outlets have three-prong GFCI outlets
Line-powered equipment has a testing seal (maximum leakage of a current < 1 mA)
Never use an extension cord
Unplug all line-powered equipment at the end of each day
A sticker should be placed on equipment noting the last inspection/maintenance
