Hospital Visitation Law Went Into Effect

Written by 

Yesterday, the new law concerning the partners visits in hospitals went into effect in United-States.

 

It provides that each hospital sets up the Medicaid and Medicare programs which will make it possible to the patients to choose who can visit them. It's the end of the discrimination and finally the partners will be able to visit.

 

“LGBT people experience discrimination in many aspects of their lives, but it is perhaps at its worst during times of crisis,” said HRC President Joe Solmonese. “We thank President Obama and HHS Secretary Sebelius for recognizing the hardships LGBT people face and taking this important step toward ensuring that no one will be turned away from a partner’s hospital bedside again.”
