Life Safety Code Happens – Documenting for Success

May 10, 2023 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am

CMS adopted both the 2012 Life Safety and Healthcare Facilities Code with many new expectations for inspection, testing and maintenance (ITM) for the many features of fire and safety protection found in long term care facilities. With this comprehensive adoption there has been an evident tightening of the requirements by CMS through stricter implementation resulting in many more deficiencies for nursing facilities. The Life Safety Code establishes minimum criteria for the many protective features and systems for fire protection, generators, doors, building services, and maintenance activities. All of this must be accomplished under the rubric that facilities maintain an acceptable degree of safety for all who live and work in our centers. This session will examine the ITM expected and an overview of the expected documentation for survey success.

Life Safety Code requires facilities to complete rigorous inspection, testing and maintenance (ITM) for the many features of fire and safety protection. Using real life examples and survey scenarios, the session will explore how the code is applied; discuss code changes and increased ITM requirements; and review common violations. Understand practical applications of the Life Safety Code and learn from Life Safety expert on what to prepare for during survey. This session will examine what CMS expects and an overview of documentation for survey success.

 

Learning objectives include:

  • Discuss 2012 NFPA 101 Life Safety Code requirements for nursing homes and current priorities focused on by surveyors.
  • Discuss the NFPA 99 Health Care Code and its impact on Nursing facilities operations.
  • Review the leading LSC deficiencies
  • Recommend policies, standards and documentation for LSC survey success
  • Examine proactive and practical solutions to achieve and maintain compliance
