With the recent adoption of NFPA 101-2012 by CMS, the annual inspection of fire door assemblies has become a top priority for many health care facilities.  This has resulted in new opportunities for fire door inspectors, and the discovery of some fire door assemblies that have been modified in ways that are not code-compliant.
