II. Narrative Section 
1. Project Description: Install rain gutters and down spouts at all building entrances and patios.
2. Project Justification: This project would provide for the purchase and installation of seamless gutters and down spouts to divert the water away from the building entrances and patios. During times of inclement weather, water pours off of the metal roof down onto public and private entrances and patios causing life safety concerns for residents, staff, and the public walking on those surfaces at the Nevada State Veterans Home. Water damage has began to appear on concrete surfaces at the following entrances: 309, 409, 208, 252, Canteen, Physical Therapy & Town Hall entrance.
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 noted on a recent facility condition analysis performed by state public works.
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? No
5. Ramifications if the Project is not Approved (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. During times of inclement weather, water pours off of the metal roof down onto public and private entrances and patios causing life safety concerns for residents, staff, and the public walking on those surfaces at the Nevada State Veterans Home. 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. Because there is a real threat of direct harm to residents, staff, and the public due to a slip and fall incident, fines and citations for this type of event would be costly to the facility, its image, and the state.
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): 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. This project would provide for the purchase and installation of seamless gutters and down spouts to divert the water away from the building entrances and patios; completion of this project would prevent trip and slip hazards associated with these areas due to damage and erosion caused by the current lack of proper drainage.
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?
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? Failure to complete this project in the specified time frame may cause direct harm to residents, staff, and the public walking on wet concrete surfaces at the home and will increase the potential for citations and fines during yearly inspections completed by the federal government. This project or a portion thereof was previously recommended in the FCA report dated 06/07/2005. It has been amended accordingly to reflect conditions observed during the most recent survey dated 04/10/2012.
