Using Risk Based Methodology in Today's Health Care Construction

Date: June 4, 2020

Time: 12:00PM - 01:00PM

You must be registered to participate!

This session will focus on how to successfully integrate NFPA 101-2012, Chapter 43 and NFPA 99-2012, Chapter 4 into a health care organization's construction program. The regulatory requirements will be reviewed and the presenters will share a success story of how one health care organization implemented a multidisciplinary, collaborative approach of using NFPA's risk-based methodology. This paradigm shift in how construction projects are assessed will improve the quality of patient care and hand-offs from construction to operations, and will bridge the gap between construction, facilities services and clinical teams like never before.

Learning Objectives:

  • Describe NFOA 101-2012, Chapter 43, Rehabilitation Chapter
  • Recognize the paradigm shift required to comply with NFPA 99-2012, Chapter 4
  • Explore a process that takes the implementatin of this new NFPA code from panning and design to operations
  • Hear how one hospital's implementation of these NFPA codes improved their quality of care
