littleneoRN 459 Posts Specializes in NICU. Has 6 years experience. Jul 4, 2011 What can't you believe? This policy has been in place in every hospital I have worked in over the past 15 years. Every item of electrical equipment brought into a hospital needs to be inspected for electrical safety, current leakage testing etc by the BME dept, regardless of whether it's an electric razor or an artificial heart.If you reread what you quoted from my post, I think I make it fairly clear what I'm having a hard time believing this...and how my experience apparently differs from yours. It just doesn't seem practical given the prevalence of electronic personal devices these days.
