Walk through NFPA 99: Health Care Facilities Code and the specific implications for designers to comply with the code as recently adopted by CMS.

Learning Objectives:

  • Describe the regulatory path and the need to follow the Health Care Facilities Code.
  • Compare the new document requirements with previous editions of the code.
  • Define the four risk categories applicable to health care projects.
  • Explore the design implications of the risk determinations.

From an interior designers view point this was an interesting discussion of the NFPA 99 codes. HC facilities are always challenging re. understanding of the HC codes.
