All the regulations: whose fault are they?

Whenever I complain about the bureaucracy attendant on every decision in our residency program - squashing us like bugs - the answer comes back: "Yes, JCAHO makes things hard for us." But the Joint Commission includes corporate members: the American College of Physicians, the American Medical Association, and the American Hospital Association. If my home institution, for example, thought that the JCAHO requirements were needlessly onerous, couldn't it organize opposition together with its fellow institutions? Or are we all just being sucked into a bureaucratic vortex?
