A new year brings new beginnings, and many hospitals entered 2019 either with new construction projects on the horizon or with projects already in progress. Lest you forget the power of the accreditation agencies that will be monitoring your efforts, though, you should be aware of many things that could affect those projects from a life safety perspective.
You might think you have the most well put-together life safety compliance program, but the minute your facility decides to make changes to the physical environment of the building, that can change. A construction project disrupts the day-to-day life in a hospital and can present many security breaches, as well as fire and life safety dangers that pop up unexpectedly every day—even if you thought you had everything covered.
