In 2010, the ADA Office within the City of Pittsburgh Department of City Planning announced the launch of the Hospital Compliance Guidelines for Deaf, Deaf-Blind, and Hard-of-Hearing; the Hospital Compliance Guidelines began with a survey.
This survey was sent out to hospital administrators and to consumers to evaluate procedures and experiences of the consumers on how a patient or family member who is Deaf, Deaf-Blind, and Hard-of-Hearing should go about receiving proper accommodations at the hospital and receive the best possible treatment.
