The Life Safety Compliance Manual: A Guide to the Joint Commission Standards is your solution to understanding the new life safety standards.
EC.5.20 and provisions from the Statement of Conditions became the heart of the new life safety chapter, which means Life Safety Code (LSC) compliance is no longer entirely under the EC requirements. The life safety chapter for healthcare occupancies now includes 10 standards and more than 100 elements of performance—that means that where you could expect one requirement for improvement in previous years, you can receive up to 10 now.
This significant shift in Joint Commission requirements will have a resounding affect on hospitals and safety professionals. Take action now and be prepared. Author Brad Keyes, CHSP—a safety consultant with The Greeley Company and formerly a life safety surveyor for the Joint Commission—wrote this valuable reference to help you understand the new life safety chapter. Our manual provides a detailed outline of the new requirements and gives you point-by-point, easy-to-understand descriptions, compliance tips, and tools to get the job done.
The Life Safety Compliance Manual is a comprehensive resource that offers you:
An overview of the life safety chapter, including The Joint Commission’s new scoring methodology
Tools to comply with the LSC and the electronic Statement of Conditions (SOC)
Strategies to meet unique challenges for healthcare occupancies, e.g., carts in corridors and the code benefits of having sprinkler protection
Hotspots for each chapter that will help you anticipate LSC pitfalls before they happen
Expert interpretation of commonly confused requirements
The companion CD-ROM includes a crosswalk of The Joint Commission’s life safety references in the EC standards and SOC old standards with the more recent life safety standards, so the changes are crystal clear to help you stay in compliance. You also get completely customizable electronic versions of all the forms and tools provided in the Life Safety Compliance Manual.
This manual is packaged in a portable 8 x 11 binder so you can simply snap it open to add your own documents and policies. It’s never been easier to customize a resource to fit the needs of your facility.
