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.
