Electrical Requirements for Health Care Facilities

Forward
The Office of Statewide Health Planning and Development (OSHPD) is responsible for enforcing all building standards, codes, and regulations pertaining to health care facilities in the State. The following document was compiled by the OSHPD electrical engineering staff as a guide for plan review to verify compliance and is intended for OSHPD use. It highlights and summarizes the most common requirements encountered in the review of health care facilities. All others who use this information for any other purpose do so with the full knowledge that it may not contain every requirement or change in policy and that the requirements are as interpreted by OSHPD. All projects submitted on or after January 1, 2008 are subject to the 2007 California Electrical Code (CEC) which is the 2005 National Electrical Code (NEC) with the 2007 California Amendments.

Plan Review Check List
The following may be used as a guide for triage to check that submitted plans are complete and reviewable by OSHPD.

Item 1 2 3 4 5

Description All electrical plans and specifications signed by the electrical engineer of record. List of symbols and abbreviations used on plans and their meaning. Correct electrical code version cited. Room names and numbers on all plan sheets. Single line diagram of the electrical system showing normal source and segregation of the essential electrical system. Clearly identify components as normal, critical, life safety, or equipment. Site plan showing service entrance, distribution system, service transformer, and generator location. Drawings showing details of all switchboards, panels, and equipment. Load calculations or other approved methods showing verification of load capacity for all equipment and conductors. Show effect on both normal and emergency system. Panel schedules with totalized, tabulated loads. Panel schedules shall indicate rating of panel, feeder conductor, feeder overcurrent protective device, branch/system (critical, life safety, equipment) and loads served. Schedules of ratings of equipment requiring electrical connection. Schedule showing all feeders phase and ground conductors, conduit sizes, estimated lengths, and overcurrent protective devices. Location and power source for all wiring devices, including receptacles, lights, switches, junction boxes, power outlets, and telephone outlets. Fire alarm system. Provide specifications for equipment, show location of all devices, and show connection to life safety power source. Indicate if power limited. Nurse call system. Provide specifications for equipment, show location of all devices, and show connection to power source. Indicate if power limited. All equipment must be listed, labeled, or certified by a Nationally Recognized Testing Laboratory including X-ray and diagnostic equipment.

REQUIREMENTS

APPLICABLE CODES

1

Life Safety Critical Equipment

Essential electrical system shall be comprised of two (2) systems with basically three (3) branches. The emergency system contains the critical and life safety branches, while the equipment system contains the equipment branches. Minimum of three (3) transfer switches are required, at least one (1) for each branch. [One (1) transfer switch allowed for maximum demand on essential electrical system of #150kVA] Branch wiring shall be independent of all other wiring and equipment except in transfer switches, exit signs, two source emergency lighting. Essential services may originate or pass through existing facilities provided they are seismically conforming facilities. Load capacity verification required for all modifications to existing systems. [See Policy Intent Notice, Appendix B]
