This self-study desk reference gives you the in-depth analysis of LSC requirements for healthcare and ambulatory occupancies, survey preparation, and how to maintain accreditation, regardless of accrediting option. The latest edition removes outdated code references and highlights changes to the LSC from the 2000 to 2012 editions, including changes to the 2012 edition to prepare for CMS adoption (for example, healthcare occupancy changes such as the clarification of some suite requirements and locking requirements).
