Tripp Lite Power Strips Meet Requirements of CMS Categorical Waiver

The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) released a categorical waiver allowing the use of power strips in new and existing healthcare facility patient care areas, if the provider/supplier is in compliance with all applicable 2012 Life Safety Code (LSC) power strip requirements and with all other 2000 LSC electrical system and equipment provisions.

As the leader in healthcare power solutions, Tripp Lite offers power strips that meet the requirements outlined in the CMS categorical waiver. These products are also certified to meet UL standards to ensure regulatory code compliance, avoid hazardous conditions and provide a safe environment for patients, staff and visitors.
