Kevin Matuszewski will present “The 2018 Guidelines: Demystifying Imaging, Operating, and Procedure Rooms” at the American Society for Healthcare Engineering (ASHE) PDC Summit. The session will review the revisions to the 2018 FGI Guidelines for Design and Construction of hospitals and outpatient facilities, focusing on the sections that address exam/treatment, procedure, operating, and imaging rooms. Kevin will co-present alongside Bryan Langlands, Principal at NBBJ, from 4:10 – 5:10 P.M. on Tuesday, March 27th.
Learning objectives for the session are:
- Predict procedure room needs based on the procedures a health care organization plans to perform
- Explain the new imaging room classification system and how it can be applied to the design of imaging facilities
- Describe how the minimum operating room size can be determined for a project and when minimum requirements may not meet a client’s needs for the procedures to be performed
- Discuss the clearances needed to accommodate provision of anesthesia and other staff in a procedure or operating room
