Places such as hospitals, nursing homes, day-care centers, ambulatory treatment or diagnostic centers, and professional offices of health care providers, are all places of public accommodation covered by the ADA. Arcor Inc has spent over 20 years helping a variety of different kinds of MEDICAL FACILITIES, become ADA Compliant and become less of a target for ADA Lawsuits. Medical facilities have to address many potential barriers to the access of their patients. Many Medical Facilities provide cafeterias and eating areas with public accommodation, which also have to be addressed, ADA compliant restrooms, doorways, accessible parking, accessible routes and ramps, add to the complex list of ADA requirements.
No Businesses are exempt from the ADA California Building Codes, and both state and federal ADA Laws, can be confusing and subject to change. Medical Facilities are required to comply with Title III of the ADA. This provision prevents discrimination against patients with disabilities and requires the medical facility to provide accommodations that improves accessibility and care for disabled patients.
In order to avoid ADA LAWSUITS, we will help you identify any barriers to access and show you how to correct these.
THE BEST ADA PLAN OF ACTION FOR MEDICAL FACILITIES FACILITIES
Although your Medical Facility may be compliant with the 1991 ADA Standards, it is very likely not in compliance with the latest California Building Code. If you fail to do your due diligence and simply choose the “cheapest” quote for your ADA inspection, you may find you have an unqualified, inexperienced inspector who gives you a sub-standard service. This typically costs you more in the long term because of incorrect and unnecessary recommendations or “improvements”. By hiring one of our experienced CERTIFIED ACCESS SPECIALISTS (CASp), you get a thorough ADA CASp Inspection, quality service, follow up, and of course, a CASp CERTIFICATE. It is only in this way that you get “qualified defendant status” and qualify for the legal benefits that are associated with having a property that is CASp Certified.
