When shifting the discussion from
patient-centered issues to the facility, you must understand that facilities
must operate under state laws, and it is those state laws that give the
enterprise the authority to exist. As such, when a facility declares that the
nature of the facility is “charitable” the state has an interest in ensuring
the facility is meeting its obligation under this status. The enormous
advantages and tax benefits such institutions gain in being termed such is the
reason for this degree of interest.
