Regulation Authority :
R.I. Gen. Laws § 23-17.11-4(a)
Purpose and Reason :
In accordance with the Administrative Procedures Act, R.I. Gen. Laws Section 42-35-3(a)(1), the following is a concise statement regarding this rulemaking for Nursing Facility Receivership (216-RICR-40-10-19). This amendment to the regulations removes statutory reiteration, revises the Authority section to align with statute, and creates a Notification Process section to align with statute. No comments were received during the public comment period; therefore no non-technical revisions were made to the regulations posted for public comment, and no justification for not implementing suggested revisions is required. In the development of this rule, consideration was given to: 1) alternative approaches; 2) overlap or duplication with other statutory and regulatory provisions; and 3) significant economic impact on small business. No alternative approach, duplication, or overlap was identified based on available information. RIDOH has determined that the benefits of this rule justify its costs.
