Conduit system under slabs in patient care areas

NEC Sections 517.13(A) and (B) require the installation of branch circuits to receptacles and fixed equipment in a patient care area to have two separate and different grounding paths. One grounding path is a metal raceway system, or a cable having a metallic armor or sheath assembly that "shall itself qualify as an equipment grounding conductor in accordance with 250.118.” The other grounding path is, of course, the insulated copper grounding conductor.
