Nursing Facility Life Safety Boot Camp
February 21 - 22, 2024

11.5 CEs for NHA, Nurses

CMS Life Safety Code scrutiny is at an all-time high. The Life Safety Code and Healthcare Facilities Code establish many expectations for inspection, testing and maintenance and an evident tightening of the requirements through stricter implementation resulting in many more deficiencies for nursing facilities.

Managing all of the various requirements of the Life Safety Code and Health Care Facilities Code is an intricate process. That is why Kenneth Daily, LNHA, and Life Safety expert, has created this one-of-a-kind program for skilled nursing facilities that will provide you and your team with the information and resources you need to manage your facility's life safety program. This course ensures you have the critical information and resources to successfully establish and maintain a life safety compliance program at your facility.

Ohio Health Care Association is sponsoring this intensive 2-day training focused on the requirements of 2012 NFPA 101 Life Safety Code and NFPA 99 Health Care Facilities Code for skilled nursing centers and designed for Facility & Maintenance Managers, Environmental Services Directors, Administrators and Long-Term Care safety consultants.

The Life Safety Code establishes minimum criteria for the many protective features and systems such as fire protection, generators, doors, building services, and maintenance activities. All of this must be accomplished under the rubric that facilities achieve an acceptable degree of safety for all who live and work in our centers.

Understand practical applications of the Life Safety Code and learn from Life Safety expert on what to prepare and document for survey.
This comprehensive program will examine all sections of the LSC applicable to skilled nursing and provide forms, policies, and best practice guides for use by healthcare organizations; presented by Kenneth Daily, LNHA, Life Safety Specialist. Using real life examples and survey scenarios, you will explore how these codes apply to nursing facilities, discuss code changes and the increased inspection, testing and maintenance requirements, and review common violations.

Every participant receives a comprehensive set of Life Safety PowerPoint training slides and a flash drive with all policies & procedures, forms, and training materials needed to establish and maintain a comprehensive Life Safety Compliance program.

Topics Include:

LSC Origins & Organization; Smoke Compartments; Construction Types; Additions & Renovations; Operating Features; Means of Egress; Door Locks; Fire Barriers; Hazardous Areas; Building Services; Fire Protection Systems; Understanding CMS; Challenges in Implementing the New Requirements of the 2012 LSC; Key Interpretations; Documentation Needed for a Successful Survey
