Accurate CEO, Reed Salvatore, participates in a panel discussion about design and compliance challenges and best practices along with Michael Bernstein from The Joint Commission, Jeffrey Bosker from New York Presbyterian Hospital and Jared Shapiro from Montefiore Healthcare System. He discussed the importance of going the extra mile to make your facility as safe as possible. Meeting the requirement and bringing doors to compliance may satisfy an immediate need, but does not eliminate long term risk. Ensuring door hardware meets the highest level of patient safety for all-risk areas helps to ensure safety and success of a healing environment. He discusses the importance of looking for the best quality, with the closest tolerances that meet all safety guideline standards to eliminate as many risks as possible. The overall focus should be on exceeding the standard for ultimate patient safety, not just meeting compliance requirements.
