    Understand how NFPA 101® relates to Joint Commission standards with The Joint Commission/NFPA Life Safety Book for Health Care Organizations.

    Fire safety is so important in a health care setting that The Joint Commission has devoted an entire standards chapter to it: the "Life Safety" chapter, which is structured to directly reflect NFPA 101®, Life Safety Code®.

    Learn exactly how The Joint Commission "Life Safety" chapter and NFPA 101, Life Safety Code (LSC) relate through this comprehensive source written by two of the leading fire safety experts in the field.

    In one easy-to-reference volume, The Joint Commission/NFPA Life Safety Book for Health Care Organizations combines:

    • The official Joint Commission life safety (LS) standards and elements of performance (EPs)
    • Matching NFPA codes and standards language

    The book offers a clear discussion of each LS standard and its related LSC regulations. This comprehensive guide to fire safety is invaluable to managers of facilities classified as "Healthcare Occupancy" as they strive to ensure patient and staff protection from the risk of fire.
