Oberon Model 1043-CCOAP4800

A healthcare facility's top objective is to protect patients. Dust, mold, and fungal spores found in the plenum space above a suspended ceiling are very dangerous to immunocompromised patients.

Poking holes in, or lifting, ceiling tiles to pass antennas or cables is not acceptable in hospitals, as these openings in the ceiling readily pass dust and spores. Wireless access points should be mounted in an enclosure which permits access to the equipment, and connection to the data cable, without lifting or penetrating the suspended ceiling.

Oberon Simplifies Compliance

Infection Control Risk Assessment (ICRA)

The Joint Commission on Hospital Accreditation has established procedures for mitigating the spread of infectious disease and contamination.  Infection Control Risk Assessment (ICRA) will have a serious impact on cabling installation, moves, adds, and changes.  Oberon enclosures provide access to wireless LAN access points and telecom equipment without entering the air handling space, a key factor in risk mitigation.

Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) Requirements

§ 164.310 Physical safeguards. A covered entity must, in accordance with 164.306: (a)(1) Standard: Facility access controls. Implement policies and procedures to limit physical access to its electronic information systems and the facility or facilities in which they are housed, while ensuring that properly authorized access is allowed.
