The Association for the Advancement of Medical Instrumentation (AAMI) now offers the NFPA 99: Health Care Facilities Code and a NFPA 99: Health Care Facilities Code Handbook.
The 2012 edition of the Health Care Facilities Code—a National Fire Protection Association book—shifts to a risk- versus occupancy-based approach to health care facility safety, including medical gas and vacuum system content formerly found in NFPA 99C. The new benchmark advances health care facility safety with major changes such as a new risk-based framework; fully updated Chapter 5, Gas and Vacuum Systems, including additional maintenance requirements; and new chapters on security, fire protection, and information technology.
The 2012 edition of the Health Care Facilities Code Handbook provides expert insights and visuals to aid you in correctly applying the new 2012 NFPA 99. Consult this companion to quickly get up-to-speed on new requirements so you can do jobs correctly.
