Could hospitals soon be required to implement anti-discrimination policies

According to the HRC, yes.

According to the Human Rights Commission, the Joint Commission, the largest organization that accredits hospitals nationwide, announced recently that, in the future, all hospitals in America will need to have a non-discrimination policy for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people.

Once the new rules are in place, “the horror stories” of loved ones being met with hostility at the worst of times and of people being denied care, will be a thing of the past, HRC President Joe Solmonese said.
This news coincides with a report the HRC released today, showing that among 200 of the nation's largest hospitals, 93 percent do not have fully-inclusive non-discrimination policies that protect all LGBT people

Interesting news, but compliance could take years and count on faith based hospitals opting out. 

You can help by contacting the Pennsylvania Hospital Association to encourage implementation.
