DOJ Settles Effective Communication Suit with Hospital in Fort Dodge, IA

See this article.  Of especial interest is the large monetary award for this sort of case:
The Justice Department statement said "the settlement requires Trinity to pay $198,000 to aggrieved individuals and a $20,000 civil penalty; provide training to hospital staff on the requirements of the ADA; and adopt specific policies and procedures to ensure that auxiliary aids and services are promptly provided to patients or companions who are deaf or hard of hearing."
