Openings figure prominently in life-safety codes and accreditation inspections. Don't let doors and hardware endanger patient safety and become a potential accreditation stumbling block. Our field experts can help identify and solve code concerns before they become compliance issues.
Current design meets the code...but not the need
Adding to compliance/accreditation challenge is a shift in healthcare facility design to meet the needs of changing patient demographics. Aside from traditional issues such as fire-rated doors, means of egress and smoke containment, healthcare facilitcies must address contemporary concerns such as:
- The growing elderly population segment
- The rising demand for ambulatory and specialized care units
- The increased need for behavioral health units
- Stringent infection control measures
