I work in a very large hospital in Georgia and I am fairly new to the healthcare industry. Basically I need to know when it comes to fire doors does every door that is a fire door need to be inspected (we do quarterly) or only certain doors?  Our architect told us that only electrical rooms, storage rooms, soiled utility rooms, and things of that nature are the only ones that have to be inspected, I looked in NFPA 80 but couldn't find a clear definition. If someone can help me out I would very much appreciate it, The person before me just did whatever but I would like to do it correctly since DNV is quite intense,

 

Thanks in advance,
