News Alert: Obama orders hospitals to grant same-sex couples visitation rights
07:34 PM EDT Thursday, April 15, 2010

President Obama signed an order Thursday night requiring hospitals to allow gays and lesbians to have non-family visitors and to grant their partners medical power of attorney.

The president ordered the Department of Health and Human Services to prohibit discrimination in hospital visitation. The memo is scheduled to be made public Friday morning, according to an administration official and another source familiar with the White House decision.

An official said the new rule will affect any hospital that receives Medicare or Medicaid funding.

Yeah, I thought about that after I wrote it, then again laying in bed this morning. I thought, "Hmm... maybe I should have said 'Darn tootin' or 'Hell yeah' or something along those lines"... but, what I wrote is exactly what came to mind when I read the article. ;-)

So... did you get your test results? If not, how well do you think you did?

I passed. Passing is 70% and I got a 74.5%. If I were grading the resident who graded me, I'd give him about the same score.
