The Facility Guidelines Institute (FGI) updates the Guidelines for Design and Construction of Health Care Facilities every four years, creating a document used by states and federal agencies to regulate health care facility design and construction. However, some states have not yet adopted the Guidelines and others require compliance with old editions of the document
This is a primer on how to use the FGI Guidelines in the course of planning and design of healthcare facilities. We will quickly review the background of the “Guidelines” and its raison d'être. We will review the essential elements of the Guidelines, available formats and how to best go about retrieving information. We will cover definitions of Acute, Ambulatory and Residential Care as well as other terms commonly used throughout the Guidelines
