Following NFPA 101 19.7.1.4, and 19.7.1.6, along with Joint commission standard EC 01.02.01 ep11, how do these apply to a skilled nursing unit that is a distinct part of the hospital. A surveyor has told us that only fire drills activated within the skilled nursing unit count, and that we have to treat it as a separate building and basically double our fire drills. If that is true do we also have to double fire drills from interim life safety?
