CON is different from state to state. What are your thoughts to mandate it at the federal level? Do you feel it would make facilities safer and more quality or would it be a bigger expensive or all? Why or Why not?
Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!
CON laws and regulations differ from state to state however I think it would be safe to say that it would help healthcare facilities cut down on cost while making healthcare facilities more safer. The CON program was put into motion to try to regulate the expenses of hospitals and care facilities. Many of your personal care homes and assisted living facilities have mandated living facilities where they have to follow state regulations when it comes to budget and healthcare facilities. I feel that it could either way as far as the expenses and the size of the facilities and the number of patients in a facility and the amount of healthcare coverage that each patient may be on as well.
Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.
