Service Rails, Prefabricated

Definition : Prefabricated rails designed to organize the utility services (e.g., electrical, gas, vacuum) and devices at the head of the patient's bed. These systems consist of horizontal metal rails with raceways for gas an electrical power lines that can be mounted in the corner of a room, across windows, or on wall surfaces. Service rails are frequently modular, facilitating their modification; they eliminate the need for individual installation of services within a wall. A typical service rail includes: oxygen, air, and vacuum station outlets; electrical power receptacles; provision for nurse call and code buttons; telephone jacks; physiological monitor support brackets; and various types of lighting (ambient, reading, exam, night-light).
