Suit Over Nashville Terps at Hospital

Five deaf patients in Nashville have filed lawsuits against a Hospital and group of doctors, claiming discrimination for not providing sign language interpreters. One of the plantiffs, William Amonett, was discharged by Dr. Edward L. King because the patient asked for an interpreter. The hospital, Summit Medical Center, is owned by the HCA hospital chain and has not responded to the suit.
