Hogan Lovells provides pro bono advice in publishing transgender hospital policies
Hogan Lovells has provided pro bono assistance in authoring Creating Equal Access to Quality Health Care for Transgender Patients: Transgender-Affirming Hospital Policies.
The publication, a collaboration among the Human Rights Campaign Foundation, Lambda Legal and the LGBT Rights Committee of the New York City Bar Association, provides guidance to hospitals on best practices for care of transgender patients.
New York associate Erin Meyer was one of the lead authors, with partner Jeff Schneider and associates Erin Howell and Dennis Quinio all making contributions.
It is designed for all hospitals seeking to align themselves with best practices in transgender care. It answers hospitals’ questions about transgender patients, shows them how to reduce bias and insensitivity and provides model policy language on issues such as confidentiality, room assignments, bathroom access, non-discrimination and recording name and gender in admitting/registration records.
