gay rights in the hospital?! You BET!| Gay News

Washington DC- Today the department of Health and Human Services announced new rules pertaining to the gay community.

Among many changes there is now the ability for patients to designate someone IE domestic partners visitation rights. This has been a huge problem for the queer community in that hospitals chose not to respect the patients and their partners by denying visitation.

Hospitals are also unable to discriminate on the basis of sexual orientation and gender identity. All hospitals that accept medicare are required to follow these new guidelines! Vertically all hospitals in the county!
