Hospital Grade Televisions vs Consumer TVs

Manufacturers of “hospital grade” televisions argue that consumer TVs cannot pass the same stringent safety standards as hospital grade televisions do. These safety requirements are written by Underwriters Laboratory under the standard, UL 60065 Annex Q. The standard No. 60065 represents a standard for safety for Audio, Video and Similar Electronic Apparatus. Annex Q standards, published in 2004, add specific requirements for video apparatus used in health care facilities. 

Do not be fooled by claims made by manufacturers of hospital grade televisions. Consumer TVs, as a result of the tests performed, are as safe as a healthcare TV product in a patient room setting.
