Webinar: Life Safety Considerations During the Management of COVID-19 #W2050
Thursday, May 28, 2020 (10:30 AM - 12:00 PM) (CDT)
This presentation will provide the facility with a remote interactive presentation to address critical Life Safety Considerations during the management of an infectious disease outbreak like COVID-19. Several Life Safety issues have emerged due to nation-wide “shelter-in-place” orders that have impacted Life Safety Code compliance (NFPA 101, 2012 edition as enforced by CMS). Individual providers and provider groups need to address specific code-related questions that they may not necessarily want to bring to the attention of authorities having jurisdiction (fire department, county, etc.) and regulatory agencies like the state’s health department or accrediting agencies.
This remote presentation will give the audience the opportunity to hear common issues with Life Safety Code compliance during the management of an infectious disease outbreak as well as learn potential solutions to help ensure a safe and compliant environment of care.
During the program, audience members will be able to ask questions or provide comments that pertain to Life Safety Code considerations and challenges during COVID-19 management.
