Liquids spilled on floor during operation when equipment is plugged into
outlet (outlet cover must be open, if outlet is being used) results in mains
voltage conducting through liquid. Possibility of electrocution of OR staff
and/or patient. Bad with a capital "B".
I'm not aware of any outlets that are waterproof while in use. Have you
suggested to them a ceiling-hung umbilical cable? Much less risk.
