The nursing home has been around a long time. As a building type, the nursing home falls under the jurisdiction of the Guidelines for Design and Construction of Residential Health, Care, and Support Facilities (FGI 2014), but nursing homes have different applicable standards. This forum will review the applicable codes, explore case studies, and discuss improvements to the codes that regulate the design for nursing homes or skilled care units.
Acquaint attendees with the code and design implementation strategies for different regions of the country.
Familiarize participants with code and licensing requirements.
Examine relevant case studies to determine common code characteristics of nursing homes.
Illustrate the tools needed to create code compliant nursing homes that also match the business strategy for the client.
