Electric Receptacles, Ground Connection

Definition : Electric receptacles designed to establish an electrical connection with an appropriate inserted plug providing a connection to ground. These receptacles commonly have slots or holes, or a combination of the two into which devices are plugged; one of the slots or holes have metal contacts that are connected to physical ground (i.e., earth) through an electrical wire; in the event of current leakage to the chassis, the electricity flows through the ground wire to earth. Ground connection electric receptacles are used in homes, hospitals, and other healthcare facilities to avoid electric shocks to equipment users.
