A recent article appearing in the NFPA Journal discusses the problems hospitals have with the multiple layers of regulations and
codes and the affect these problems can have on the hospital's bottom line. Codes that are adopted or made compulsory in a jurisdiction,
for example, can contain provisions that differ and sometimes conflict. With better coordination, many of these conflicts could be
resolved and make great strides towards streamlining health care regulations.
