It's very difficult to say exactly. How this will all play out of course, but it's pretty clear that long term care facilities need to be ready before we talk about how they should respond during Investigative Phase I wanna just talk more generally. Eric what are some of the ways that long term care facilities in similar organizations can address liability and compliance risk on a daily basis. Everyone's a great question. And before before the the risks and the liability issues can be addressed I they have to be a dentist side. So when we reference long term care facilities, there's obviously a whole spectrum of facility type of licensure categories and depending on the specific type of facility, the risks and liabilities that that they're dealing with may vary, but at a very high level at a macro level each facility. Each provider type will want to. Together a specific plan to assess their individual needs the needs of their staff, the needs of their their louise resident in as part of that identification that they work their way through identifying the potential risks than issues.
