Requirements for healthcare occupancies recognize that people in patient care areas may be electrically compromised due to direct contact with metallic equipment or intravenous lines and probes inserted under the skin. Patient care areas have special grounding requirements, and some types of healthcare facilities require an "essential electrical system."
Chapter 5 also provides special requirements for other occupancies, including areas of assembly, theaters and similar locations, temporary and permanent amusement attractions, motion picture and television studios, film projection rooms, manufactured buildings, agricultural buildings, mobile homes, manufactured homes, recreational vehicles and park trailers, floating buildings, marinas and boatyards and temporary installations.
