Life Safety code compliance and survey preparation are key to the health and well-being of skilled nursing center residents and staff. FHCA's 2024 Life Safety 101 is a comprehensive, six-hour training for experienced and new plant managers. The event will feature the Agency for Health Care Administration's (AHCA) John Altherr and Eddie Alday and FHCA’s Life Safety Consultant, Clinton Slier with Integrity Health Care Systems, Inc., who will provide a comprehensive review of current state and federal life safety requirements, greater understanding of available resources related to life safety, and how to align life safety codes to the plant manager’s facility. Additionally, attendees will receive an electronic resource manual to assist in the day-to day-operation, which includes AHCA checklists and links to invaluable resources and regulations.
