Good Afternoon All,
We are asking for feedback on the following:
Commenting on Changes to Life Safety Code
CMS announced last week that it intends to adopt the National Fire Protection Association’s (NFPA) 2012 editions of the Life Safety Code (LSC) and the Health Care Facilities Code (HCFC). According to the CMS fact sheet, adopting the newer edition of the LSC “would reduce the burden on health care providers because the 2012 edition of the LSC is aligned with international building codes, and therefore implementation of this edition would make compliance across codes much simpler for Medicare and Medicaid-participating facilities.” Currently, CMS employs the standards in the 2000 edition of the LSC.
ASCA will be submitting comments on behalf of the industry, and appreciate any feedback you or others from your organization may have on the proposed changes. The deadline to submit comments is June, 16, 2014. The proposed rule can be found here. If you have questions, contact Kara Newbury at firstname.lastname@example.org.
