Standby Generators Keep Critical Systems In Place.

As of July 1st, 2018, Florida has enacted legislation regulating the use of standby generators in nursing homes. Larger nursing homes are required to have enough fuel to run generators for 72 hours after a power outage. All generators must fuel the AC systems in addition to other critical systems in place. While Florida is the first state to enact this legislation, it’s expected that more states will follow. Adding a standby generator system is the proactive choice for most modern nursing homes and assisted living facilities, no matter the legislation.

Specific Situations Where Generators Are The Answer.

Many nursing homes require patients to be relocated if the power is out for a half an hour or more. This can be a difficult and daunting task for residents, staff, and administrators at nursing homes and assisted living facilities. While Virginia does not mandate a specific ratio of nurse or aid to the patient, the number of staff necessary to transport so many people would usually be well beyond the abilities of most facilities. For patients confined to wheelchairs in multi-level facilities, this can be an even more cumbersome endeavor. Often, a generator is the practical solution to maintaining the comfort of your residents, medication, devices, and lab work you’ve invested in. When you combine those reasons with the fact that employing enough staff to potentially help move patients, a generator becomes an even smarter investment.
