    Webinar
    January 2018 Webinar
    When we design healthcare facilities, we may not always have a complete understanding of how we can proactively design for safety and account for risk beyond fire and life safety. How can we more effectively consider safety issues like infections, falls, medication errors, injuries associated with patient handing or behavioral health, and security? This webinar introduces the new, easier to use, online interface for The Center’s Safety Risk Assessment (SRA) toolkit, a proactive and systematic approach to designing and renovating healthcare facilities for safety. Originally developed through research and consensus to support the requirements of the FGI Guidelines, The Center's research team will walk you through the why, what, and how of each part of the online SRA toolkit illustrating features with vignettes gathered from the testing process.
