Human Services to take steps to ensure that hospitals participating
in Medicare or Medicaid respect the rights of patients to receive
visitors & designate others to make decisions about medical care in
the case of an emergency is the right one. It follows the lead of many
states & makes a strong statement about who we are as a nation &
what we value. No one should face the distress of lying ill or injured
