Earlier this month, we examined how D.C.-area hospitals fared in the Human Rights Campaign’s 2010 Healthcare Equality Index, which rates hospitals on their policy toward LGBT patients (they all failed). Then, we spoke to HRC’s Tom Sullivan, whoexplained the Equality Index’s high standards. Now, Sum of Change has produced an in-depth video—-including interviews with both Sullivan and Ellen Kahn of the HRC’s Family Project—-which explains all aspects of the index, why it’s important, and why more facilities will be coming into compliance in the future. Let’s hope D.C.-area hospitals are listening.
