Product Description

Product Description

The Joint Commission’s Environment of Care and Life Safety (EC/LSC) standards focus on how everyone in the organization should participate in activities that make the care environment safe. The standards require organizations to establish plans and identify key individuals for managing the environment of care; identify physical risks to which the organization is susceptible; establish activities to minimize these risks; train staff to implement these activities; and monitor the effectiveness of these activities and implement improvements.
Recently, The Joint Commission has identified the need to increase the field’s awareness and understanding of the National Fire Protection Association’s (NFPA’s) Life Safety Code (NFPA 101-2012). The Joint Commission has rewritten the “Life Safety” (LS) chapter to align with the 2012 edition of the Life Safety Code (NFPA 101-2012) and Health Care Facilities Code (NFPA 99-2012), and it has made changes to the “Environment of Care” (EC) chapter as well.
In September 2016, the United States Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) issued K-Tags; in response, The Joint Commission created a second iteration of elements of performance (EPs) that it expects to be published in early 2018.
After completing this activity, the participant should be able to:
  1. Identify the modifications to the SOC.
  2. Describe the changes to the LS chapter and EC, and how these changes impact compliance.
  3. Identify the most common compliance issues related to life safety.
Target Audience
This activity is relevant to all organization staff, medical staff, volunteers, and contract staff, particularly those responsible for life safety-related activities, including safety officers and committees, engineering staff, department managers and supervisors, performance improvement staff, training and education staff, and risk managers.
