Hospital Security – Code Compliance is Possible

Presented by Michael A. Crowley, PE, FSFPE, Vice President, Jensen Hughes

The balance of Life Safety and Security has been a challenge for designers, operators and Authorities Having Jurisdiction (AHJ). NFPA 101 2012 edition and the International Building Code 2015(IBC) allow the locking of egress doors for the security needs of the patient. This is a new allowance for the security need of patients or staff. Locking of egress doors for the clinical needs of the patient has been retained in the Code. This presentation will cover the multiple methods of securing doors within a healthcare occupancy. Electronic control doors, delayed egress devices, access control devices and elevator lobby locking methods, hardware selection fire suppression and fire alarm requirements will be discussed. These new allowances will provide guidance based on Model Code recognized criteria.
