The Equal Rights Center releases report on barriers facing people with disabilities

The Equal Rights Center (ERC) released its new report, “Ill-Prepared: Health Care’s Barriers for People with Disabilities.”  Through a series of investigations across the country, ERC uncovered staggering levels of federal accessibility violations at hospitals, doctor’s offices, and pharmacies.  The investigation also revealed that less than 25 percent of medical service providers were compliant with accessibility standards outlined in the Americans with Disabilities Act.
