Does the Fear of a Civil Rights violation keep you up at Night?
According to a study by Health Affairs in 2013, 59% of hospitals in the country do not offer language services based on the Office of Civil Right (OCR) guidelines leaving themselves open for a major Civil Rights lawsuit. OCR guidelines requires that all hospitals and nursing homes post nondiscrimination notices in the top 12 languages of the state in which they reside. In addition, Healthcare facilities that reside in a high concentration of Limited English Proficient (LEP) persons must provide translation of main documents and interpretation (spoken) services free of charge to the patient and their families.
