No, this has nothing to do with Nevada!
Now that ObamaCare is being implemented (at least the parts not delayed), the Federal government thinks they can write all the rules. The local serfs must comply.
Here’s the latest proposed rule change:
The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) today announced a proposed rule on the adoption of updated life safety code (LSC) that CMS would use in its ongoing work to ensure the health and safety of all patients, family and staff in every provider and supplier setting.
Read it again – CMS want to override existing local rules and ordinances – but it’s to keep you safe!
Here’s part of what is proposed:
The key changes for ASCs are:
Would require interior non-bearing walls have a minimum of 2 hour fire resistance rating and be constructed with fire retardant treated wood;
Would require all doors to hazardous areas have to be self-closing or automatic closing;
Would address the issue of placing alcohol based hand rub dispensers in corridors;
Would require a fire watch or building evacuation if sprinkler system is out of service for more than 4 hours; and
Would require smoke control in anesthetizing locations.
This is your FEDERAL GOVERNMENT!
ObamaCare was passed, not to provide healthcare at affordable prices, it was passed for CONTROL. They want to not only control what healthcare citizens receive, they want to control the providers. Local building codes and the opinions of local medical professionals should take priority over what bureaucrats in Washington DC want, but local rights are being lost because of money they will receive from CMS.
The schools don’t have local control because they took money from DC, thanks for Common Core and uneatable school lunches.
Now CMS wants to further burden healthcare providers with regulations. More than 6 million people lost their health insurance because of ObamaCare, yet the Feds are rejoicing about 7 million signing up. Why are healthcare costs increasing? It’s pretty obvious.
They are proposing much more. See it here: CMS Proposed
This is America?
