Operating rooms in hospital requires all these active fire protection systems including the integration with all the passive protection systems for corridors, smoke barriers, vertical openings, exit separations, hazardous areas, and building separations.
Automatic Sprinkler System:

The requirements of the Life Safety Code are typically followed by the ICC codes, or they typically could be used as a basis for equivalencies to the ICC codes per the AHJ approvals.
Please let me if this was helpful. I would be happy to continue a discussion with you.
hi MR. MILTON
thanks for your answer ,but please clarify this paragraph from fire protection handbook
This paragraph appears to be guidance for fire personal for hazards in the operating room not a mandated code requirement. The extinguishment requirements of the 2012 NFPA 101 Section 18/19.3.5 and fundamental Section 9.7; installation standard NFPA 13 must be met without exception.
Please refer to this NFPA article: Are Operating Rooms a Wet Procedure Location?
2012 NFPA 99 provides for the protection of electrical shock when the operating room is designation by the facility governing body as a "wet location"
Radioisotopes is a hazardous material and must be protected by Chapter 60 of the 2018 NFPA 1. Refer to Section 188.8.131.52.1.5 health care occupancies requirements. Also, consult with the 2016 NFPA 400 Hazardous Material Code, Chapter 18.
