Healthcare Associations

In recent years the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services has begun to place increasing importance upon emergency and standby power systems. This has led to a lot of expense and confusion for owners of healthcare facilities.

I have prepared a presentation that provides guidance for owners and operators. I make clear which codes/standards healthcare providers are required to meet as well as how compliance may be achieved. In addition, I cover issues such as the following:

  • How to prepare for a CMS or State survey
  • How your local building and fire codes work for you
  • Simple steps to improve reliability and reduce costs
  • Things that you really need to know that the generator company won’t tell you
  • How to supervise a repair
  • How to supervise maintenance
  • What you need to know before you buy a new generator

 As a part of my presentation I provide a summary of the discussion as well as handout materials for your members to take home and use as reference. In addition, I remain available to your members for consultation after the presentation in order to assist them with problems and questions that arise after they return home.

 My presentation usually runs about two and a half hours. However, depending upon the time slot available, I can adjust it from one to four hours.

 I have been in the emergency power system business since 1977 and have owned my own company since 1983. In the early ‘90s I began providing in-house training programs for my industrial customers and in 2005 began codes based training programs for my healthcare clients as CMS started enforcing NFPA 101, Life Safety Code, 2000 edition. The following is a partial list of recent presentations:
