That's why we created a tab- based system of organizing all of our facility's critical operational info — policies and procedures, employee files, in-service and meeting details — into binders in a way that makes it easy for anyone to find exactly what they're looking for in no time. For example, we have a safety binder that has specific tabs for detailed information on how we con- duct drills, manage medical gases and perform risk assess- ments. When we flip the binder open at the corresponding tab, the surveyor can see where we noted each specific time (Q1, Q2, Q3, Q4 or annually) a drill was conducted. So, if a surveyor or staff member wants to see when our last fire drill was conduct- ed, they simply open to the drill tab and check. The binders keep us organized and prepared for our next survey.
