@pegbell Thank you for sharing this important information. Hospital care and a better understanding of what people with hearing loss need in healthcare settings is a major issue. The ADA provides standards to mandate appropriate care, but too often it is neglected. People with hearing loss need to have knowledge of their rights under the ADA. I hope many will explore the links in this information.
To all the hard of hearing folks out there….Are you willing to learn more about your rights?
