This program discusses a law that applies to hospitals and other health care providers such as physician offices and nursing homes. Have you posted the required sign, amended the patient rights statement, trained your staff, or written your policies yet? Have you selected an employee, such as a patient advocate, to address any grievances on discrimination? The new law addresses a civil rights law for health care providers and others and addresses nondiscrimination, required signs and notices, interpreters, and more under Section 1557 of the Affordable Care Act. Building on longstanding and familiar federal civil rights laws, this is the first law to prohibit discrimination on the basis of sex (which includes gender identity and sex stereotyping) in covered health programs and activities. This program also covers the CMS proposed changes to the hospital CoPs to implement this new law under the Hospital Improvement Act.
