A three-prong option should be sought in order not to risk patients and staff. Safety is first and a safe option must be provided. A new equipment can be ordered to replace the one already available, or earth cable provision be made on the equipment through some engineering. The most affordable safe option, which can easily be available to ensure hospital services are not affected, should be given priority. Electrical safety is a basic requirement in creating safe sanitariums. The testing devices used in hospital especially those which must deliver electrical energy to patients must be manufactured up to high standards. At no single tingle should a test from one instrument be relied upon. A hospital should have several testing devices so that the disadvantages on one can be countered by the advantages of the other. It would be good to use devices with multiple parameters. The current and voltage output should be key parameters in such devices. At no time should any naked cables be allowed on such devices. Any faulty device must be discarded unless upon repair the hospital is assured of its normal functionalities as before. Testing must always be done by approved people no matter the knowledge and understanding of the physician or technician in need of such devices. Some of the devices which a hospital should have to ensure electrical safety include insulation monitors, insulation fault location systems, and medical IT systems. The Technology of Capnography.
