Resource: Environmental Impact Outlinedocument on the student website
Develop an outline for hazardous waste management, fire and safety management, disaster management, security management, or ADAguidelines for a renovation or new planning of a health care facility. Each team is assigned a different area so there is no duplication. The outline will then be used for a final presentation in Week Five.
Include the following information in your outline:
Write an overview of your assigned environmental impact issue.
Examine local, state, and federal legal and regulatory requirements. Consider the following agencies:
Occupational Safety and Health Administration
Joint Commission of the Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations
Your state’s health planning and development agency
Department of Health and Human Services
Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendments and other agencies as applicable to facility planning
Is there a Certificate of Need (CON) program for your state? If so, explain the program. If there is not a CON for your state, was there one in the past and when was it eliminated?
What are issues to consider when meeting the International Building Code for a facility?
What measurements may be done in advance of the new plan or renovation?
List the stakeholders that may play a role in your development
Write a 1,050- to 1,400-word outline with your findings.
