"A deaf senior citizen in need of major heart surgery did not understand her options as her doctor wrote brief post-it notes to explain. Sent home with a pamphlet and insufficient explanation, she opted out of the surgery until coming to DAC. DAC informed her that she needs full communication access to make informed choices. We advocated for her rights to have full access with a sign language interpreter. With proper access, she understood her choices and opted to have life saving surgery."
