Health Care Facilities Are Not Immune To Lawsuits
Health care facilities are often at an advantage due to the high level of understanding that is involved in the day-to-day operations. The health care industry is designed to help people and to look out for those who require special accommodations. Lawsuits can often successfully be prevented, but the dishonest actions of people seeking payouts cannot. Perhaps the lawsuit involves ADA compliance in patient restrooms, grab bars, entryways, hallways, service and transaction counters, as well as parking lots and parking stalls, van accessible ADA spaces, walkways, access aisles, and the use of truncated domes to assist the blind and visually impaired. Health care facilities also need to be aware of service animals and the ADA laws and regulations, and have a policy for employees to follow regarding service animals.
