I have been given the opportunity to write out a pilot program for a hospital corporation. They want me to come in and explain the federal laws that regulate Service Dogs. Then they want me to set up a program as well for their HR dept. for new hire’s. So there will be little or no problems when Service Dogs come into their hospitals. What I would like to do is ask for everyone’s input on this. So that I can make this the best in the nation. Then be able to take it on to Washington show them it works and see it implemented in all hospitals so we stop the abuse of those who use Service Dogs. So if you could please post what you feel you have had problems with or have heard of when someone goes into a hospital, and how you would like to see it made better. Thank You.
