2014 Hospital/Outpatient Guidelines
In 2014, for the first time, the Facility Guidelines Institute published two Guidelines documents. The FGI 2014 Guidelines for Design and Construction of Hospitals and Outpatient Facilities includes minimum recommended program, space, risk assessment, infection prevention, architectural detail, and surface and built-in furnishing needs for clinical and support areas of hospitals, rehabilitation facilities, and ambulatory care facilities. It also addresses minimum engineering design criteria for plumbing, electrical, and heating, ventilation, and air-conditioning (HVAC) systems, the latter by incorporating ANSI/ASHRAE/ASHE Standard 170-2013: Ventilation of Health Care Facilities.
