Our understanding of complex ADA technical criteria for medical facilities helps us guide healthcare providers to meeting the needs of patients with disabilities while meeting all the requirements of the law.
Our specialists evaluate the physical accessibility of healthcare facilities, including hospitals, clinics, research laboratories, and medical offices. Conducting accessibility facility surveys is one of our methods to identify non-compliant conditions and recommend appropriate modifications.
Our team reviews architectural plans for accessibility compliance. Addressing the entire design and construction process, our services include monitoring construction conformity and verifying compliance upon completion. As architects, we design and implement remediation plans as well as offer insight beyond just the technical requirements and share some learned best practices.
Additionally, we review and provide guidance on owner policies that aid / direct employees in dealing with difficult accommodations in a healthcare setting (e.g.; service animals and effective communication).
Our specialists have also served as expert witnesses, investigating and surveying facilities for ADA compliance to help resolve specific complaints or litigation. LCM has surveyed medical facilities from coast to coast on behalf of the Department of Justice’s Barrier-Free Healthcare Initiative
