Fire Door Resources
Door Inspection Resources
ASHE is developing resources to help members comply with new Conditions of Participation from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), which requires routine inspections of fire doors performed by "qualified persons." You don't need to have a special certification or third party training to be qualified, but ASHE is working to provide members with the information they need to create and implement door inspection and maintenance programs.
