Heat waves and climate change: is there a risk to electricity in hospitals?

What happens when there is a power cut in a hospital? What if the power outage is due to a heat wave?

Today we want to explore the possible implications of a power grid collapse due to heat, focusing on hospitals and healthcare facilities.
