This seminar addresses the unique needs of ambulatory care professionals like you who are responsible for Joint Commission accreditation standards and survey compliance related to the Environment of Care (EC), the Life Safety (LS) Chapter, and the Life Safety Code®. You will learn from experienced Joint Commission engineers and have your accreditation and survey compliance questions answered. The event is for locations that provide services to four or more patients at the same time, including either anesthesia or outpatient services that render patients incapable of saving themselves in an emergency. It also addresses ambulatory surgery centers seeking accreditation for Medicare certification, regardless of the number of patients served simultaneously. You will learn tips directly from Joint Commission experts for managing compliance with the EC elements within your ambulatory organization. You will review the core and ambulatory health care occupancy specific requirements of the Life Safety Chapter and analyze the requirements for managing compliance with the Life Safety Code®. You will also gain a better understanding about Project REFRESH and the SAFER Matrix and how the 2012 Life Safety Code® affects the Ambulatory EC and LS requirements.
