What are some common codes and other electrical must knows for hospitals?

I am asking because I have an interview for a position in a newly build hospital. Job discription is routine and complex inspection, maintenance, repair, alteration and installation of hospital electrical systems equipment, fixtures and appliances in compliance with code.

Besides going over this section in the NEC, I would appreciate and insight you guys may offer.

On the up side, You will have time to learn. A scan of the NEC and NFPA will get you by the interview.
These systems are already installed so servicing them, you will see it first hand and it will all become clear.

Hospitals are good places to become code savvy, They utilize almost every section of the code book.

Another tactic is to keep an eye out for something different, like panelboards that never feed any circuits on an adjacent floor. When you see something that you've never seen before, there's a wealth of information about "why do they do it that way" right here on the forum.

Best of luck!!
