Beyond public areas of entry, parking, and accessible routes, we review primary function areas, including diagnostic, imaging, exam, procedure, recovery, and patient rooms for compliance with ADA requirements. Our understanding of complex technical criteria for medical diagnostic equipment helps clients make prudent decisions for the benefit of all patrons.
We survey medical facilities to identify non-compliant conditions, recommend modifications to achieve compliance with applicable ADA standards, monitor construction conformity, and verify compliance upon completion. Our architects design and implement remediation plans or review drawings to verify that all ADA accessibility standards are satisfied.
As expert witnesses, our specialists investigate and survey existing 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.
LCM also is a neutral third party, conducting assessments when clients wish to address specific complaints, exercise due diligence for pending transactions, or benchmark compliance performance.
