ISDH Health Facility Plan Review
As many are aware, the ISDH is behind in reviewing health facility plans for construction with 27 pending plans to be reviewed. The ISDH Division of Long Term Care has re-arranged the plan review process so that Kim Rhoades will be directly involved with the plan review process rather than it being directed by ISDH engineers. Mrs. Rhoades plans to contact the facility’s representative and architect to arrange for an in-person meeting at which time the facility and the architect will be required to walk through the submitted plans to explain how the plans comply with regulatory requirements and then sign an affidavit attesting to such compliance. The ISDH hopes that this process will speed up plan review with the goal of clearing the existing 27 plans by December 31, 2013.
