ADA Resolution Response to Medical Provider ‘No Visitor’ Policies During COVID-19 Pandemic

Document

The Office for Civil Rights, at the U.S. Department of Health &
Human Services, has enacted a national resolution requiring
hospitals to modify their ‘No Visitor’ policies, to safely allow in-person
supports (caregivers, family members) for patients, who are needed by you
in order to benefit from medical care provided during the COVID-19
pandemic.

As a person with a disability, if you should need emergency hospital
care (including the ER), or to visit a medical provider, and require the support of
either your caregiver or family member in the treatment/examination
room, the medical provider must allow this to assist you in making
informed decisions on your care/treatment.

If you should have questions or need assistance, call our Van Nuys Service Office (Henry or Esther) 818.988.9525, or Lancaster Service Office (Anabell) 661.942.9726
