A New Form Has Been Posted on Changes With the 2012 LSC

Hello all…

This fall has been a very busy time for me. I am thankful that I completed my task of reading all 651 pages of the new CMS Final Rule on Emergency Management standards that will become effective November 15, 2017. I re-wrote the HFAP EM chapter to align with the new requirements and it will soon be sent to CMS for review and approval.

But what I wanted to bring to your attention is I have posted a new document under “Tools” on this website that explains most of the changes that healthcare facilities need to know in regards with the new 2012 LSC. Click on “Tools”, then go to the bottom of the page and click on “Changes the New 2012 Life Safety Code Will Bring”, and open the document called “Changes to the Life Safety Code that the 2012 Edition Will Bring”.

I hope you will find this helpful. If you like it, pass it on to someone who you feel could benefit from it.
