Pennsylvania and New Jersey: Newly Adopted FGI Guidelines Include Safety Risk Assessments

The 2014 FGI Guidelines for the Design and Construction of Outpatient Facilities have now been adopted in Pennsylvania and New Jersey.  Among the new guideline additions is the need to conduct safety risk assessments to reduce harm associated with adverse events such as falls, infection and medication error.

You may be wondering where to start - what does it really mean and how is it done?  To answer that, we've developed a hands-on workshop, designed to support this new requirement of the 2014 FGI Guidelines.  And to make it convenient, the workshop is located next to the Newark Penn Station, easly accessed by NJ Transit and by Amtrak from the Northeast Corridor or Keystone service to Harrisburg.

Location: Hilton Penn Station
Newark, New Jersey

Date: July 23-24, 2015

Registration - $575.00
