Track:Behavioral Health Practices
Application of building and fire codes to behavioral health facilities requires using codes and standards in ways that are different from general care healthcare facilities. This presentation addresses those differences. Using interactive polling devices, code requirements applicable to behavioral health facilities will be discussed based upon the responses to the polling questions. Topics that are well understood by the participants, as determined by the polling device, will not be discussed in detail. Instead, time will be used to focus on those areas in which the participants have questions or may not fully understand the code requirements.
