In a recent Q&A on the FacilityCare website, consultant Brad Keyes answered a question about sleeping suites.

Q: Are recovery rooms and observation units considered sleeping suites or non-sleeping suites? What is the definition of what constitutes a sleeping suite?

A: Recovery rooms, surgical suites and pre-op suites would be considered “non-sleeping suites” because sleeping accommodations are not provided in these areas. The Life Safety Code uses the term “patient sleeping rooms.” If the suite includes patient sleeping rooms, then it is restricted to the requirements for sleeping suites. If the suite does not provide sleeping rooms, then it can be considered a non-sleeping suite, which has fewer restrictions.
