As the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) considers the adoption of the 2012 edition of NFPA 101, it is important to understand how this code will affect existing health care facilities. An ASHE webinar on this topic will be held Feb. 24 at 12 p.m. Central Time. The webinar will discuss changes covered by the categorical waiver process as well as the limited use of two operations to open a door; expanded use of sliding doors; door inspection requirements; the use of non-health care space by inpatients; smoke barriers on non-health care floors; and sprinkler requirements. The webinar is free to ASHE members (a $125 value), and registration is now open. The webinar is the first of a series of webinars ASHE is offering in 2016 to explain the changes with the new edition of the Life Safety Code®.
