Fire Protection for Hospitals
According to the National Fire Protection Agency (NFPA), patients within healthcare facilities are presumed to be incapable of self-preservation. Therefore, their safety depends on an appropriate and effective combination of in-place fire and life safety features along with an acceptable hospital staff response.
State Systems, Inc. provides licensed and certified fire protection inspections for all our services and adheres to the most stringent inspection and fire code regulation procedures as outlined by the NFPA and local fire codes. We can examine a hospital’s existing fire and life safety features as well as provide training to hospital staff members.
Hospital Clean Agent Fire Suppression Systems
State Systems, Inc. is a leading provider of clean agent fire suppression systems that protects healthcare facilities—including hospitals, nursing homes and major medical facilities—throughout TN, AR, MS where there is a need for quick reaction to a fire, where patients are present, where fire may strike day or night and where damage from conventional agents cannot be tolerated.
We proudly carry and offer installation and maintenance services for ANSUL and FM-200 fire suppression systems—call us or contact us online to learn more.
Hospital Fire Alarms
Here at State Systems, we install fire alarm systems for hospitals and other healthcare facilities in Tennessee, Arkansas, and Mississippi. Fire alarms are the first response system for alerting hospital staff, visitors and patients of a fire or emergency. At State Systems, Inc., our highly skilled, experienced fire safety team performs annual fire alarm testing for facilities to make sure the building’s fire alarm system will operate if and when a fire emergency occurs.
There are both local and national fire safety requirements a facility’s fire alarm system must meet. The operation of any fire alarm device must automatically provide a general alarm, perform the control functions the device requires and transmit an alarm automatically to the fire department by the most direct and reliable method approved by local regulations. We have a strong understanding of these requirements and local regulations—contact us today for more information on fire alarm systems we install for hospitals and other healthcare facilities.
Hospital Fire Sprinklers & Pumps
Automatic fire sprinkler systems and fire pumps provide hospitals and other healthcare facilities 24-hour fire protection. The NFPA outlines that complete automatic sprinkler protection is required for all new facilities. Listed “quick response” sprinklers should be installed throughout the smoke compartments containing patient sleeping rooms. Sprinkler protection is also required in smoke compartments in all existing healthcare facilities that have undergone renovation.
Since so much depends on sprinkler operation, it is critical to install and maintain these systems correctly—they must be installed in accordance with NFPA 13, Standard for the Installation of Sprinkler Systems.
Call State Systems, Inc. for sprinkler installation—our expert technicians are familiar with the rules and regulations pertaining to sprinklers.
Hospital Fire Extinguishers
Portable fire extinguishers effectively extinguish nearly 95 percent of all reported fires –making them an absolute necessity for hospitals, nursing homes, clinics and other healthcare facilities throughout TN, AR, and MS. In accordance with codes and regulations, hospitals, nursing homes and assisted living communities are required to provide a sufficient number of fire extinguishers throughout each building. Additionally, employees of these types of healthcare facilities are required to know how to properly use fire extinguishers.
State Systems, Inc. offers fire extinguisher installation and training services—call us or contact us online to learn more.
Hospital Kitchen Fire Suppression Systems
Like other facilities, hospitals have kitchens that pose a fire threat. There are countless flammable components in hospital kitchens, including cooking oil, gas, grease and alcohol, which can easily be triggered by the extreme heat produced from multiple ovens and grills. In such a hazardous environment, a properly installed kitchen fire suppression system is especially important.
These well-established, quality fire suppression systems are designed to protect the following areas associated with cooking equipment:
- Ventilating equipment including hoods, ducts, plenums and filters
- Fryers, griddles and range tops
- Upright, natural charcoal or chain-type broilers
- Electric, lava rock, mesquite or gas-radiant char-broilers and woks
Give us a call to learn more about the kitchen fire suppression systems we install.
Vent Hood Cleaning for Hospitals
A dirty grease trap or vent hood in any commercial kitchen is like kindling for a fire. Establishments that cook food commercially—including hospitals and other healthcare facilities—should have vent hood cleaning scheduled on a regular basis, as specified by national and local fire prevention codes. A clean vent hood and exhaust system drastically reduces the chance of a fire in healthcare facilities. In addition to reducing fire hazards, a regularly cleaned exhaust system is also more efficient at removing heat and odors from kitchens.
Some of the services our hood cleaning technicians provide are:
- Cleaning of interior and exterior of kitchen hoods
- Grease removal from throughout hood and exhaust systems
- Filter replacement and removal
- Cleaning of all accessible areas of exhaust duct work
- Exhaust fan maintenance
Call us or contact us online to learn more about the professional vent hood cleaning services we provide in the Mid-South.
Emergency & Exit Lighting
Proper emergency and exit lights are essential to keeping individuals safe in exiting a hospital or other healthcare facility in case of an emergency situation. During serious power outage situations, emergency lighting illuminates all exit passages, including corridors, stairwells, ramps and escalators, exit lighting points the way to safe exits. In an emergency situation, building occupants can become disoriented and overall safety can be compromised if either the emergency or exit lighting fails to activate. Don’t take the components of your emergency and exit lighting system for granted. Let State Systems, Inc. check your batteries, charging systems and bulbs to ensure you’re prepared in case of an emergency. We keep up with all maintenance and recordkeeping so you don’t have to.
The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) also requires both monthly and annual testing for emergency and exit lighting—we can help you with both. Just give us a call to learn more.
Access Control Solutions for Hospitals
Most hospitals require employees, doctors, volunteers, medical students and contractors to wear photo IDs. In many cases, patients and visitors receive ID badges as well. Many hospitals and healthcare facilities are now realizing that it makes sense to link hospital ID badges to full access control systems. Access control systems provide healthcare facilities a necessary layer of security by allowing or denying a person’s admittance to an area through the use of access cards or biometric recognition.
Hospital access control systems strengthen the overall security of a facility by limiting access to restricted areas and permitting only authorized personnel to enter.
Call us or contact us online for access control system installation.
Nurse Call Systems
We know that healthcare facilities need a nurse call system that is reliable, efficient in operation and flexible enough to meet the changing demands of staff and patients. That’s why we are a proud distributor of the Rauland-Borg Responder line of nurse call systems and products. Rauland-Borg Responder nurse call systems are top-of the line, highly customizable and designed to meet the unique communication needs of any hospital and extended or assisted living facility.
Paging & Intercom Systems for Hospitals
We have years of experience installing paging and intercom systems for hospitals throughout Tennessee, Arkansas, and Mississippi. Paging and intercom systems help hospitals and other healthcare facilities locate employees, notify building occupants of emergencies and broadcast routine announcements to all building occupants quickly and efficiently. We can install simple, one-way paging systems as well as more complex two-way intercom systems depending on a healthcare facility’s needs.
Structured Cabling Systems
The informational needs at a hospital or healthcare facility are intense. Healthcare practitioners require instant access to medical records, including X-rays and MRIs. Hospitals in Tennessee, Arkansas and Mississippi are constantly adding new, sophisticated equipment which requires the movement of massive amounts of data. Hospitals are increasingly going wireless as well, which may be impacted by interference from radiological equipment.
Modern hospitals and healthcare facilities must have a strong structured cabling foundation. This is the basic foundation on which all other network equipment depends. Without this foundation, the work of a hospital would come to a halt. However, with a strong foundation doctors, nurses and other healthcare professionals can thrive and provide the highest level of medical care—something all patients deserve.
Contact us for hospital structured cabling services.
White Noise & Sound Masking Solutions
White noise machines are designed to drown out the noises in a setting or environment that make it difficult for individuals to fall asleep. Clinical studies reveal that people who use a white noise machine wake up more rested and rejuvenated and fall asleep far more quickly than those who do not. As such, the use of white noise machines is becoming increasingly common in hospitals.
Patients tend to give hospitals a poor rating when it comes to quietness in and around patient rooms. By installing white noise machines in patients’ rooms, hospitals and healthcare facilities can contribute to achieving the ideal patient care experience. White noise machines can even improve employee health and well-being—studies have shown a direct correlation between sound decibel levels in work environments and employee blood pressure levels and heart rates.
Call State Systems, Inc. today at 866-308-5701 to learn more about white noise machines and sound masking solutions.
Digital Signage Solutions for Hospitals
Here at State Systems, Inc., we offer hospitals and healthcare facilities in the Mid-South digital signage solutions. Digital signage is the display of multimedia content on electronically controlled displays. A digital sign consists of a computer or playback device connected to a large, bright screen such as an LCD or plasma device.
Hospitals are increasingly turning to digital signage in our increasingly tech savvy world. The time that visitors and patients spend waiting marks a valuable opportunity to reach them important educational announcements, programs and advertisements.
Advanced hospitals, clinics, physicians’ offices and community health centers across the country are using video, graphics, and bullets to convey messages and inform patients of significant health issues, treatments, and news. Our digital signage solutions offer user-friendly templates and scheduling features. Hospital staff can easily update displays in patient rooms, lobbies, waiting rooms, and hallways.
Contact us today for digital signage solutions for hospitals and healthcare facilities.
