Standards to Add Appeals Process for Discharges

I do not support the fast track of this proposed regulation; rather it would be beneficial for all parties involved for the proposed change to the regulation to undergo the standard regulatory process in order to allow sufficient time for analysis of its possible impact. Additionally, the proposed regulation in question, in reference to the state's final disposition [ruling] should have a specific time frame of less than 10 days. A long, process without a specific time frame will result in greater, more adverse financial loss to assisted living providers.
