LaTribuna Christian Publishing Reports On Civil Rights Violations In American Healthcare
By: LaTribuna Christian Publishing
Right now most healthcare providers are not allowing visits by family members or by members of Clergy. This has added unnecessary stress onto the patients and their family members. As a Volunteer Community Chaplain, I have also been locked out of the facility where I serve our Lord. I began to investigate what my options where concerning these matters.
I contacted the Arizona Attorney General's Civil Rights Division and was able to talk with a Civil Rights Compliance Officer. The officer whose name is Jessy was very helpful and informative. Jessy explained that it is indeed a violation of a patient's civil rights when certain requests have been denied, such as receiving visits by members of Clergy for bedside prayer and receiving last rights. If a family makes these requests for their loved one who may be incapacitated that is also a violation of their civil rights.
LaTribuna CEO Chaplain Paul Vescio was mentioned in a story about the necessity of Chaplains and family members in American healthcare. The story was published by Brianna J Frank of the Arizona Republic and posted on AZCENTRAL.COM. Here is the link to that story. https://www.azcentral.com/
