Life Safety Code
Medicare adopted the NFPA Life Safety Code 2012 edition in June of 2017. CMS expects a “complete and comprehensive” assessment of Life Safety Code compliance with every ASC Medicare survey. In the past, this survey focused almost exclusively on the built environment. Today, the LSC survey includes long-standing but seldom checked requirements for the on-going inspection, testing, and maintenance of components in accordance with NFPA Standards. Our expert can help you navigate these requirements and prepare for your next survey with confidence and peace of mind.
