The 2014 FGI Guidelines includes a requirement for a safety risk assessment (SRA) that incorporates previous requirements for assessment of infection control, patient handling, and psychiatric injury risks, while adding consideration of risks such as falls, medication errors, security, and immobility. A panel of industry experts with diverse backgrounds will review the new requirements and provide two owner perspectives on incorporating safety risk assessments into the PDC process. This session will enable attendees to:
Explain when a safety risk assessment is required.
Describe the required steps in the SRA process.
Discuss how SRA collaboration in design improves project outcomes.
List three infection prevention-related design considerations that could be proactively identified using the SRA early in the design process.
