The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services has officially adopted the National Fire Protection Association's (NFPA) 2012 edition of the Life Safety Code (LSC). This code contains numerous standards that impact the operation of new and existing healthcare facilities.

Healthcare providers affected by this rule must comply with all regulations by July 5, 2016.

The new guidelines apply to hospitals; long term care (LTC) facilities; critical access hospitals (CAHs); inpatient hospice facilities; programs for all-inclusive care for the elderly (PACE); religious non-medical healthcare institutions (RNHCI); ambulatory surgical centers (ASCs); and intermediate care facilities for individuals with intellectual disabilities (ICF-IID).

With just weeks left to prepare, will your facility be ready to comply?
