PFLAG Lauds New Hospital Visitation Ruling
Last week, PFLAG National, along with over 50 coalition partners, submitted public comments on President Obama’s new hospital visitation rule, known as “Changes to the Hospital and Critical Access Hospital Conditions of Participation to Ensure Equal Visitation Rights for All Patients.” The new rule will allow LGBT individuals and their families to visit their loved ones who are hospitalized throughout the day or night. Once this rule is finalized, we believe it will go a very long way in overcoming the long-standing injustices LGBT people and their families have faced in hospital visitation. To learn more about this rule, and our recommendations to make it even stronger, please be sure to read our comments here.
