Description

Nearly 200 codes and standards affect the design and construction of health care facilities. ASHE's advocacy team monitors and advocates on behalf of hospitals to keep these codes and standards current with technology and health care trends. In this session, learn about the latest codes, standards, and guidelines that pertain to the health care built environment; which regulatory editions apply; anticipated adoption dates; and new trends for health care regulations, such as the FGI Guidelines, ASHRAE, NFPA, ICC, and other codes and standards. This session will enable you to:

  • Identify important regulatory changes required for health care design and construction.
  • Describe the regulatory process and how to get involved.
  • Discuss the latest design trends in health care and how the regulations may affect outcomes.
  • Identify anticipated deadlines for compliance, adoption, and grandfathering of the requirements.
