Designing electrical systems for health care facilities—especially hospitals—is more demanding than for conventional buildings because the stakes are so high. Therefore, circuit protection requirements are necessarily more stringent. Health care and hospital electrical system design is regulated by various codes and recommendations that are often confusing. The requirements are full of information on both the normal and emergency power system branches. 

Unfortunately, these guidelines simply list requirements on feeder and critical branch circuit protection schemes specific to health care systems; they do not provide detailed information on how electrical engineers should achieve them. Therefore, engineers must understand and apply circuit protection best practices—especially when designing electrical systems in hospitals and health care facilities.
