ASHE webinar series with Joint Commission engineering director to explain new standards

The Centers for Medicaid & Medicare Services' adoption of the 2012 Life Safety Code developed by the National Fire Protection Agency sparked many questions among health care facilities managers last year. Those questions only continued when the Joint Commission created more than 75 new or modified Elements of Performance (EP) to mirror CMS's new Conditions of Participation requirements.
The American Society for Healthcare Engineering of the American Hospital Association, is kicking off a three-part webinar series open to members and nonmembers that will delve into the new and modified EPs. The Joint Commission's Director of Engineering George Mills, FASHE, CHFM, CEM, CHSP, will be the main speaker for its first webinar Jan. 24. Those interested in the webinar,   Introduction of the New Joint Commission Standards, can register through ASHE.
