    Description

    This presentation will consist of two sections: a primer for emerging professionals on how to use the FGI Guidelines for Design and Construction of hospitals, outpatient facilities, and residential health, care, and support facilities and an overview of the major revisions to the 2018 Guidelines. The presenter will review the essential elements of the documents, available formats, and how best to retrieve information from the Guidelines. Following the primer, the presenter will address new and revised sections of text including accommodations for care of patients of size; accommodations for telemedicine services; imaging, examination, procedure, and operating rooms; and sterile processing facilities.
