    • The 2012 edition NFPA 99: Health Care Facilities Code -- Officially adopted by CMS for the first time, NFPA 99 reflects a centralized health care environment where it is the risk that a procedure poses to patients and staff, not the location where it is conducted. Health care providers that participate in federal reimbursement programs are now mandated to meet the new (CMS) COP based on the 2012 Code. This edition introduces new chapters on security, fire protection, and information technology; plus updates to Chapter 5, Gas and Vacuum Systems and Chapter 6, Electrical Systems.
