30: Preparing for Your Deemed Status Survey
Construction projects in hospitals present many challenges, and having to comply with the requirements of your accreditation organization adds an additional layer of oversight. This session will help to provide attendees with a better understanding of what accreditation organizations (AOs) are looking for in regarding construction projects, from preconstruction requirements to closeout documents. Requirements and recommendations from the National Fire Protection Association’s NFPA 101, Life Safety Code; NFPA 99, Health Care Facilities Code; FGI Guidelines for Design and Construction of Hospitals; and the CDC will be reviewed along with documentation requirements/recommendations. Some of the more common instances of nonconformance along with causes will be explored. Attendees of this session will be better prepared to provide a safe environment of their patients, staff and visitors, both through practice and documentation of continuous readiness.
