Handicapped Accessible Medical Examinations
Start accessible medical examinations now. Currently many medical facilities do not have examination tables that a person who is wheelchair dependent can access. Most medical facilities do not have a scale to weigh a person who is not able to stand or walk. Sign this petition directed to the US Department of Health and Human services asking them to require health facilities to make medical examinations accessible to all, by requiring at least one examination table that a person in a wheel chair can access independently or with minimal assistance, and requiring that health facilities have a scale that can be used by people who can not stand or walk.
Why is this important?
People who are wheelchair dependent deserve to have accessible health examinations.
Currently many health facilities do not have examination tables that a person who is wheelchair dependent can access. Nor do they have scales to weigh a person who can not stand or walk.
We are calling on you to add your name to show your support for helping people who are wheelchair dependent have accessible respectful health examinations.
