Abstract

The focus of this manual is to provide guidelines for health administrators and other health professionals in working with patients and other possible hospital employees with disabilities. This includes an overview of the American Disabilities Act of 1990, dealing with health professionals and hospital employees. This manual provides a detailed outline of the ADA and how to incorporate the act with how hospitals are operated. This component is virtually nonexistent in most hospitals. The manual provides some suggestions on how to deal with people with various cognitive, health disabilities, such as visual, hearing, behavioral, motor, and other various disabilities that affect people. This guide lines manual also gives another perspective on working employees with disabilities and what to expect from them in spite of their disabilities.
