2 Questions for new long term care unit
1. Hand Rails in hallway: Are the measurements taken from wall to wall or from the end of the hand rail to handrail? If we have an 8 ft hallway, do the hand rails count as an obstruction?
2. For patient rooms in a fire compartment...do the doors also have to be smoke proof for the patient rooms? Our proposed doors are 2 parts to expand the exit in the event of an emergency beyond the required 36 inches.
