A cousin of mine passed away about 20 years ago. He'd been on the board of a coop between all of the hospitals in north western Colorado.  They noticed that they were suddenly being hit with a lot of violations from the FAA for various infractions of obstructions around the helipads that had never been a concern before.  They investigated to see if there had been some new stricter guidelines implemented but they found the problem was that former nam pilots were retiring and they hadn't cared if there was an obstacle or two near the pad as they'd experienced plenty of that before.
