Many changes have stemmed from the CMS adoption of the 2012 editions of NFPA 101: Life Safety Code and NFPA 99: Health Care Facilities Code. Many of these changes are in the Standards and Elements of Performance (EP) the Joint Commission uses to survey health care organizations. This session will review some of the more significant environment of care and life safety changes, including new EPs and those that were modified. This session will also include a brief discussion of the Phase II project, and an opportunity to ask questions.
