FGI Guidelines for Emergency Conditions Comment Period
Due by June 30, 2021
The draft of the proposed Guidelines for Emergency Conditions in Health and Residential Care Facilities is presented in the final section of the white paper. Recommended changes put forth by the Emergency Conditions Committee are based on the 2018 Hospital, Outpatient, and Residential Guidelines documents and suggest new minimum standards for emergency preparedness.
A three-month public comment period opens concurrent with the release of the white paper on April 1, 2021, and closes on June 30, 2021. FGI encourages all users of the Guidelines documents to carefully review the proposed new standard for emergency conditions and provide detailed feedback. All comments will be reviewed by the steering committee of the Emergency Conditions Committee. FGI expects to publish the new standard when it releases the 2022 Guidelines for Design and Construction documents.
