Summer is just around the corner! This year the first official day of summer is Sunday, June 20th, although it has felt like we’ve already been in summer for a couple months now.  As a facility manager you probably have a lot to do before your Joint Commission survey. Unfortunately, documentation requirements are complex and can often be misunderstood. Not to mention the requirements and code adoptions will vary from one Authority Having Jurisdiction (AHJ) to another. This makes it difficult to know whether your facility is in compliance with the code’s standards. And even after spring cleaning, there still may be deficiencies hidden in your facility that could result in fees or loss of accreditation. It can be overwhelming, and you may not be certain that your facility is prepared for a Joint Commission Survey. Therefore, commercial Fire and Life Safety Consulting can help you make sure your facility will be incompliance and ready for it’s Joint Commission survey!
