For all my Deaf friends, family and clients: You need to visit this web site

 www.justice.gov/opa/pr/2012/July/12-crt-931.html

print out this page and carry it in your purse or wallet. When you go to the doctor or hospital and ask for an
interpreter and that doctor or hospital says you have to provide your own interpreter...show them this page. Below are 2 excerpts:

"U.S. Attorney’s offices across the nation are partnering with the Civil Rights Division to target their enforcement efforts on a critical area for individuals with disabilities through a new Barrier-Free Health Care Initiative...."

“These settlements ensure that deaf and hard of hearing patients can communicate with their doctors and obtain equal access to medical treatment, especially at critical moments in their care,” said Barbara McQuade, U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Michigan. “This nationwide initiative emphasizes that disability discrimination in health care is illegal and unacceptable.”
