This webinar will be recorded and made available as a View Upon Demand presentation shortly after the webinar airs. The VUD presentation will also be in the emembership library for emembers to view as usual for free as part of the emembership.
Time: 12:00pm Noon Central Time Zone
This 1 ½ hour session will assist you to formalize environment of care while including attention to the 2012 Life Safety Codes and the current requirement for your Emergency Operations Plan. Not every facility has the resources for an on site mock survey and while this course could never replace a mock survey due to the absence of visuals, it will certainly provide you with the check lists and information necessary.
We will cover:
- OR vs. procedure room – same or different?
- Facilities Guidelines Institute as a reference
- Are you a distinct entity as required?
- Fire Safety
- Emergency Equipment including maintenance
- Drills, drills, and more drills….

Special Price: If both Part 1 and Part 2 are purchased together, the total price will be discounted $50.00 to $350.00 for both sessions.
Handouts will include but not limited to:
Copy of Federal EOP regulations (E tags)
Copy of Federal LSC checklist (Q Codes)
Eye wash station rules
Attention: Please do not print handouts until you review as some are quite lengthy. You may prefer them in their electronic format due to size.
This is an excellent session to assure you have the most recent edition of all the regulations.
