ABC’s Facility Safety and Management Standards are designed to ensure that your business location and premises are appropriate for providing patient care. These Standards address two critical categories: facility safety and safety management.
Each of your patient care locations must provide specific dedicated private treatment areas that are properly equipped for patient evaluation and care.
A private treatment area is one that provides visual and auditory privacy.
You must conduct an annual emergency evacuation drill in accordance with the evacuation plan. The drill(s) must be done for all staff on all shifts.
To practice these plans, your annual evacuation drill needs to include all staff and needs to be documented as to date and time. Use the Fire/Emergency Drill Documentation form available in the online Resource Pack to document your drill.
