Description

The 2014 FGI Guidelines requires that a safety risk assessment (SRA) be conducted for health care facility design projects. This session will dive into the experience of UC Irvine Medical Center, which participated as a pilot site in the Center for Health Design’s development of a safety risk assessment toolkit. In a panel format, the presenters will talk about lessons learned (pros and cons) in conducting a cross-disciplinary SRA for the renovation of a nursing unit.

This session will enable participants to:

  • State the benefits of conducting a safety risk assessment early in a project.
  • List the benefits and challenges the UC Irvine team found in implementing a safety risk assessment approach.
  • Describe the types of design discussions that evolved as part of the risk assessment process.
  • Assess the benefit of using existing tools and methods to conduct a safety risk assessment for health care facility design.

Speaker(s):

  • Linda Dickey, Moderator, Director, Epidemiology & Infection Prevention, UC Irvine Health
  • Ellen Taylor, AIA, Director of Research, The Center for Health Design
  • Lance Carlson, Principal/Director of Strategies, Taylor Design
  • Lynn Willis, Regulatory Compliance Programs Manager, Risk & Regulatory Affairs, UC Irvine Health
