About The Physical Environment

Hospitals and other health care facilities are unique. They house a variety of materials and equipment that can cause harm. These include surgical instruments, machines that emit radiation, anesthesia, prescription drugs and biomedical waste.

Over the last several years, 91㽶Ƶ has noticed a pattern of challenges related to certain Environment of Care® and Life Safety standards. We’re confident that with a little guidance, compliance issues can be overcome. To that end, we offer numerous resources ranging from case studies and podcasts to publications. Whether you need help with fire protection, utility systems or means of egress, you’ll find the support you need to achieve compliance. 91㽶Ƶ has identified several Standards that have been frequently cited during survey activity over the past few years. 

This portal will provide information to reduce findings of non-compliance. The purpose of this portal is to provide guidance and education to reduce instances of non-compliance with the top Environment of Care/Life Safety standards.
