Understanding regulatory codes is an integral factor in properly designing and maintaining a health care facility. Recent editions of the codes have introduced new requirements that can ease the difficulties of design, if used properly. Test your knowledge of regulatory codes with a live code quiz on NFPA 101, the IBC, and the FGI Guidelines, including an open discussion of questions with a lower percentage of correct responses.
This session will enable attendees to:
Apply requirements of the 2012 edition of NFPA 101 to existing facilities, as described in the 2013 CMS Waiver Memo.
Describe updated requirements in the 2012 edition of NFPA 101, the 2012 edition of the IBC, and the 2014 edition of the FGI Guidelines that will assist in new construction of health care facilities.
Assess personal comprehension of regulatory codes based on correct responses to seminar questions.
Identify top code misinterpretations in the 2012 edition of NFPA 101, the 2012 edition of the IBC, and the 2014 edition of the FGI Guidelines.
