When longstanding Miller Electric customer, Nebraska Medicine, decided to proactively replace aging and sometimes original electrical infrastructure equipment within Clarkson Hospital, trusted relationships were critical in ensuring a positive outcome.
Safely upgrading electrical infrastructure required pre-planning and coordination with both UNMC and Nebraska Medicine to complete construction risk analyses (CRAs), detailed work plans, site visits to all end users in Clarkson Hospital connected to the system, tracing circuits in older areas and confirming system connections across multiple sub systems.
Problem solved, before it becomes one.
From a health care perspective, we assisted Nebraska Medicine’s Risk Management team in providing ‘what if’ and ‘back out’ plans for critical areas including AICU, PACU, SICU, Central Sterile, Dialysis and more.
For all of those areas, we had to address things like assuring UPSs were up to date on battery replacements — and that door controls, security systems and telemetry systems would remain operational. In some cases, vulnerabilities were discovered and a correction plan was noted.
