Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

Regulations are rules based on and meant to carry out a specific piece of legislation (such as for the protection of environment). Regulations are enforced usually by a regulatory agency formed or mandated to carry out the purpose or provisions of a legislation.

Regulations are issued by various federal government departments and agencies to carry out the intent of legislation.Administrative agencies,often called "thebureaucracy," perform a number of different government functions, including rule making.The rules issued by these agencies are called regulations and are designed to guide the activity of those regulated by the agency and also the activity of the agency's employees.Regulations also function to ensure uniform application of the law.

Many workplace rules are in place to keep workers or customers from hurting themselves. These regulations may be put in place before an incident based upon anticipated threats or after an accident to prevent a reoccurrence of an accident. When your employees follow safety rules, you may see your health-care costs decrease as fewer people visit the hospital. Even better, your productivity may increase because your workforce is more stable and your best people are on the job, not in the doctor's office.

These Rules and Regulations Governing the Long Term Care Ombudsperson Program are 4 promulgated pursuant to the authority conferred under section 42-66.7-12 of the Rhode Island 5 General Laws, as amended, for the purpose of adopting prevailing standards for the 6 implementation and enforcement of the long-term ombudsperson program including, but not 7 limited to, the procedures for the receipt, investigation and resolution, through administrative 8 action, of complaints filed by residents of long term care facilities, individuals acting on their 9 behalf or any individual organization or government agency that has reason to believe that a long 10 term care facility, organization or government agency (which government agency is responsible 11 for the regulation, inspection, visitation, or supervision of facilities or which provides services to 12 residents of facilities) has engaged in activities, practices or omissions that constitute a violation of 13 applicable statutes or regulations or that may have an adverse effect upon the health, safety, 14 welfare, rights or the quality of life of residents of long term care facilities.
