When a shutdown of the system is required for a repair or upgrade a huge stress is applied to a host of different areas throughout the Health Care Facility. Most high risk areas such as NICU, CCU, ICU have to be back fed and have portable vacuum units brought in. Often on larger tie-ins, surgical areas will be downgraded to only life and limb surgeries pushing off scheduled operations. Maintenance workers, Surgical staff, Critical Care Unit Nurses, Respiratory Therapists and many other staff and departments feel this stress. They will constantly have to monitor cylinder gas levels when the hospital supply system is down and this daunting task has to be done alongside all their regular duties. That being said, the shorter the shutdown, the better it is for patients and staff alike.
