2018 Guidelines Update: Changes to Keep Pace with Clinical Practices
Presenters: Douglas S. Erickson, FASHE, CHFM, HFDP, CHC, Chair, 2010, 2014, and 2018 Health Guidelines Revision Committee (HGRC); and David B. Uhaze, RA, Chair, 2022 HGRC
This webinar begins with a discussion of what “minimum standards” means, the consensus process used to develop the Guidelines documents, and the Facility Guidelines Institute’s new Beyond Fundamentals program, which offers draft design requirements as well as more in-depth information for applying Guidelines requirements or going beyond them. In the second half, the presenters will address new text, including accommodations for care of patients of size, accommodations for telemedicine services, and a revised chapter on mobile/transportable medical units, and summarize changes to requirements for recovery spaces; imaging, examination, procedure, and operating rooms; and sterile processing facilities.

About FGI, the Guidelines, and the HGRC
The Facility Guidelines Institute is a not-for-profit corporation founded to provide leadership and continuity to the Guidelines revision process. The Guidelines for Design and Construction documents are used by states to regulate health care facility design and construction, as code through adoption, as a basis for state written codes, as an adjunct to state codes, or for reference. The Health Guidelines Revision Committee (HGRC) is a multidisciplinary consensus body of clinicians, administrators, architects, engineers, and authorities having jurisdiction that is convened every four years to revise and update the Guidelines documents.
