New CMS requirements for fire door inspection

The American Society for Healthcare Engineering (ASHE) recently published answers involving CMS’ new fire safety regulations. The new Conditions of Participation require fire doors be routinely inspected by “qualified persons.”

ASHE clarified to members that there isn’t any class or certification to qualify for door inspection. Anyone who’s familiar with the code requirements for fire doors will meet the “qualified” standard.

For more details, see the ASHE brief on the topic.
