EC.5.20 remains a heavily cited standard, according to Joint Commission data published in the February 2008 Joint Commission Perspectives.

Statistics culled from accredited hospital surveys during the first half of 2007 show that 27% of facilities received a requirement for improvement for EC.5.20 deficiencies. That standard requires compliance with the Life Safety Code and Statement of Conditions.

All subscribers to the Hospital Safety Center can check out a special report that outlines The Joint Commission's approach to life safety surveys.
