AL Resident Self-Preservation Assessment

Assisted Living providers may use the below Life Safety Code tool for establish that their resident population is not able to self-evacuate in an event of an emergency.

Use of this Assessment should help support your assertion in a Life Safety survey that your community should be reviewed as a Health Care Facility rather than a Residential Board and Care.

This tool should be completed for each resident upon admission and significant change and retained with your Emergency Preparedness and evacuation plans.
