FGI announces the public proposal period for the 2022 FGI Guidelines revision cycle. The proposal period opened on Wednesday, November 1, 2018, and will close at midnight on Sunday, June 30, 2019.

In WV, the FGI Guidelines are used for plan reviews by hospitals and nursing homes. Use is recommended for assisted living facilities. The Guidelines are very impactful on many aspects of healthcare facility design and, thus, operation.   West Virginia uses them for hospital design review, nursing home review, and adherence is recommended for assisted living facilities.

The FGI Guidelines for Design and Construction documents are updated every four years to keep pace with new concepts, capabilities, and technologies in the delivery of health care. The Guidelines documents are used by states to regulate health care facility design and construction, through adoption of the Guidelines as code, as a basis for state written codes, as an adjunct to state codes, or for reference. See the adoption map on the FGI website at www.fgiguidelines.org/state-adoption-fgi-guidelines for details.
