June 4, 2018

Roy W. Breitenbach was quoted in ASC Focus, the Ambulatory Surgery Center Associations (ASCA) Journal.

In the June/July, 2018 article on the “Caring for Paralyzed Patients,” Mr. Breitenbach was quoted on ASCs meeting regulatory requirements under the Title III of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).

The article discusses ADA requirements and the importance of ASCs understanding the rules,  facility and staff readiness,  and the potential liabilities if the ASC fails to meet ADA and/or other disability laws when caring for a paralyzed patient.  In the article, Mr. Breitenbach noted “ASCs are considered public accommodations because they are open to the public,” he added “Therefore, ASCs are subject to the provisions under Title III of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).  This federal regulation prevents disability discrimination in various aspects of life, including public accommodations.  Almost all states have their own laws against disability discrimination.  There are also some city and local laws.”
