Accountability and Responsibility for client and patient safety in healthcare facilities is on the rise. It is becoming more costly and time consuming to successfully navigate not only the plant operation but also the Environment of Care requirements, code compliance and reporting aspects of protecting the public. This responsibility for healthcare facilities management can not be taken lightly. It requires the knowledge of a skilled, qualified and service oriented facilities management professional. The Director of Facilities Management profession has become a dying breed lately. The objective for Facilities Management Solutions is to fill this void within the healthcare industry.
Institutions like Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) and surveyors including the Joint Commission, DNV and HFAP are continuing to raise the bar and hold healthcare facilities accountable for the safety of their patients. Authorities Having Jurisdiction (AHJ), such as State and Local Fire Marshalls, are also holding public and private healthcare corporations, educational institutions, and hotel/apartment complexes to formal code standards.
