Most hospital safety engineers spend their careers in the back of the house, preparing for the inevitable visit their facility gets every 18–36 months from The Joint Commission’s surveyors.

They are making sure that the hospital is abiding by the rules that regulators set forth, and those rules can be the fuel of nightmares: complex, hard to understand, and sometimes vague.
