A2.2-188.8.131.52 Equipment and supply storage
- Space allowances for pediatric beds and cribs are greater than those for adult beds because of the variation in bed/crib sizes to accommodate varying patient sizes. Therefore, the pediatric critical care unit may require more general storage than the minimum in Section 2.2-184.108.40.206 (2) (Equipment storage room or alcove).
- Formula storage may be located outside the unit but should be available for use at all times.
