The Joint Commission has identified the need to increase the
field’s awareness of the Life Safety Code®* (LSC). To address
this need, The Joint Commission Perspectives® publishes the
column Clarifications and Expectations, authored by George
Mills, MBA, FASHE, CEM, CHFM, CHSP, director,
Department of Engineering, The Joint Commission. This column
clarifies standards expectations and provides strategies for challenging compliance issues, primarily in life safety and the environment of care. You may wish to share the ideas and strategies
in this column with your Facilities leadership. This month’s column also includes information for the Radiology Department.
