8D Title III Barrier Removal & Healthcare

8D Title III Barrier Removal & Healthcare

The Healthcare environment is both dynamic and highly regulated. While the disability access laws cover all healthcare providers, many aspects of disability access in the physical environment do not happen.  In the physical environment, leadership assumes that architects and construction processes address all physical barriers, despite the fact that physical barrier surveys show that at least half, if not a majority, of the issues are movable barriers—not addressed by a construction project. This workshop provides ideas on creating an effective program through accessibility surveys, barrier removal processes, and maintenance of the accessible environment. The panel will discuss survey approaches, scoping strategies, and policy elements needed in an effective program
