The Environment is Calling You

Lyn Bentley, MSW

Nursing centers must comply with federal and state environmental laws and regulations. According to the website “Healthcare Environmental Resource Center” (HERC), examples of applicable regulatory topics include management and disposal of medical waste and center issues such as storm water, boiler and generator operation and renovation/construction activities. The Survey and Regulatory page of AHCA’s website now has a link to the HERC website to assist members understand and comply with relevant environmental requirements. Included on the HERC website is a “Compliance Summary Tool” to help you understand which environmental regulations apply to your center.
