Around this time last year, architecture firms were asked to send suggesting revisions to the 2006 Guidelines for Design and Construction of Health Care Facilities. But architects were not the only ones invited to the round table. Nurses, surgeons, anesthesiologists, neonatologists, infection preventionists, administrators, facility managers, consulting engineers, safety and security professionals, risk managers and over 25 state, federal and private enforcing authorities have participated too. Finally, the 2010 FGI Guidelines are here.
It's said that the 'significant' changes from the 2006 edition are marked along the sides. For the Health Facilities Management article on the 2010 Guidelines, click here. Also try their official press release back in November 09. Both links list their mayor changes. For $168, you can get it on the FGI website.
Last year I sent a few suggestions on quiet and isolation rooms in Mental Health Facilities... I'll have to check and see if they were added. :)
