Objection to Fast Track

Thank you for the opportunity to weigh in on these proposed changes to the discharge procedures.  I would like to enter in as an objection to the Fast Track process on a decision to allow adequate time in evaluating the potential outcomes as a result of the proposed.  It is important to note that a resident's best interest is always at the core of the any decision made.  In addition, a business must have appropriate avenues to access to ensure the best decision can be carried out for all parties involved.  As others have commented, there's language in the proposed that should receive attention for change due to uncertainty of interpretation.
