II. Narrative Section 
1. Project Description: Paint all interior walls and ceilings. Prior to painting, all surfaces will be repaired and prepped. An epoxy-based paint will be utilized in wet areas for durability.
2. Project Justification: In order to maintain a safe, clean, and home like environment, as outlined in CFR 483.15, regular repairs and finishing of interior wall surfaces is required. These surfaces are regularly damaged by resident wheel chairs, medical equipment, and normal routine facility operations causing potential infection control issues at the home. This project provides funding to repair and paint interior walls and ceilings for the entire facility.
3. Project Background Information: The Nevada State Veterans Home is an 85,000 square foot 180 bed long term care facility governed by multiple federal regulations including 42 CFR 483 - Requirements for States and Long Term Care facilities and 38 CFR 51.60 - Standards applicable for payment of per diem. CFR 483.70 and CFR 51.70 require that the facility be designed, constructed, equipped, and maintained to protect the health and safety of residents, personnel, and the public. Although the Veterans Home didn't begin admitting residents until August of 2002, construction of the facility was largely completed in late 1999. This project was identified on the FCA report 2011 for completion.
4. Mechanical and/or Electrical Equipment Replacement Projects:
a. Type of equipment to be replaced:
b. Year existing equipment was installed:
c. Manufacturer of existing equipment:
d. Model of existing equipment:
e. Are there any known hazardous material abatement?
5. Ramifications if the Project is not Approved (short essay): Failure to maintain the integrity of interior walls at this facility will result in Citations from two federal government agencies (CMS & VA) charged with recertifying the Veterans Home annually. If the facility is found to be out of compliance with CFR 483.70 and CFR 51.70, the federal government's recourse includes; monetary fines, sanctions on new admissions, or closure of the facility.
Health, Life Safety, and/or Legal Issues
6. Please describe any health, life safety, and/or legal issues that will be resolved by completing this project (Short Essay): CFR 483.70 and CFR 51.70 require that the facility be designed, constructed, equipped, and maintained to protect the health and safety of residents, personnel, and the public. If the facility is found to be out of compliance with CFR 483.70 and CFR 51.70, the federal government's recourse includes; monetary fines, sanctions on new admissions, or closure of the facility. Interior surfaces in the facility are regularly damaged by resident wheel chairs, medical equipment, and normal routine facility operations causing potential infection control issues at the home. This project provides funding to repair and paint interior walls and ceilings for the entire facility to prevent infection control issues and maintain the facility in accordance with federal guidelines.
7. Proposed Project Schedule Impacts/Issues
a. Will this project require relocating personnel or vacating the building for any period of time? No
Explain:
b. Has any design work been completed on the proposed project? No
c. What is the latest date this project could be completed without disrupting your program? 06-30-2017
d. What is the driving proposed completion date? the interior walls of this facility were most recently painted 14 years ago and endure continuous damage as outlined in the project justification. Failure to complete this project in the specified time frame will only increase the potential for citations and fines during Yearly inspections completed by the federal government.
