CMS, in July, released Survey and Certification Notice 17-38-LSC, Fire and Smoke Door Annual Testing Requirements in Health Care Occupancies. CMS confirmed that in health care occupancies, fire door assemblies are required to be annually in accordance section NFPA 101 section 8.3.3.1. The Inspection and testing of fire door assemblies shall be performed by qualified individuals with knowledge and understanding of the operating components of the type of door being subject to testing. Doors selected for inspection include:

* Doors in fire rated assembly?s such as doors in fire rated walls
* Exit enclosures and hazardous spaces with rated doors
* Fire rated labeled doors

With the adoption of the 2012 Life Safety Code effective July 5, 2016, CMS will expected all healthcare organizations to be compliant with the requirements. One of the more challenging changes that the new 2012 Life Safety Code is compliance with NFPA 80-2010 edition, which requires all fire-rated door assemblies to be inspected annually. The requirements for the annual inspection include the following:

* Is the door label present and legible?
* Is the door and frame free from holes and breaks in all surfaces?
* Are the doors, hinges, frame, hardware and threshold secure, aligned and in working order with no visible signs of damage?
* Are there any missing or broken parts?
* Is the clearance from the door edge to the frame no more than 1/8 inch?
* Is the door undercut no more than ? inch?
* Does the latching hardware operate and secure the door in the closed position?
* Is the door assembly free from are auxiliary hardware items which could interfere with its operation?
* Has the door been modified since it was originally installed?

OHCA along with AHCA has prepared door inspection training and an inspection form to use to meet the 2012 edition of the LSC requiring facility?s complete the annual fire door inspection requirement. The training packet has been developed to provide guidance and training to ensure that individuals inspecting and testing door are prepared and qualified.

This webinar will also review the qualified training necessary to complete the fire door inspection and provide facilities the necessary documentation tools to complete these. Compliance with the annual fire door assembly inspection and testing in accordance with 2010 NFPA 80 is required by January 1, 2018.
