communicate their policies to patients, all medical centers already
have both the national LGBTQ-inclusive patient non-discrimination and
equal visitation policies online via the VA national website.
For the second example of communicating these policies to
patients, many VA medical centers have used the Patient Rights poster
available from the VHA. The VHA has sent us the instructions below to
share with any VA hospitals that need to access this poster—we hope this
will be helpful for you:
The posters can be ordered
from the Hines Service Distribution (SDC) using FPOrders. You will want
to contact your Publications Control Officer. Below are the details the
PCO will need to order:
- POSTER VA 10-88, P91985, VA PATIENTS RIGHTS AND RESPONSIBILITIES POSTER 18" X 24"
- POSTER VA 10-89, P91986, VA PATIENTS RIGHTS AND RESPONSIBILITIES POSTER 24" X 36"
- POSTER 10-284, P96280, FAMILY MEMBER RIGHTS AND RESPONSIBILITIES 18" X 24"
