Wireless network in hospital

Under investigating the wireless architecture for large hospital, but I don¡¦t have much knowledge about medical environments. Can anyone give some suggestion or provide information about anything should be specially taken care in this critical case.

Thanks for any information.

Re: Wireless network in hospital

-Hospitals use fire doors, perform site surveys with doors closed.

-Xray rooms are protected with Lead. So no coverage unless radio is outside and antenna is inside.

-Elevators may require coverage by shooting down shafts from above.

- portable carts used by nurses require seamless roaming from one cell to another. Test thoroughly in site survey.

-Beware of interference, pay attention to signal quality, probably want better than 85%.
