Vermont Hospitals/Health Systems Contacted

The primary message I am sharing with these hospitals/health systems is that it will now be their responsibility to provide corn-free nutrition, water/fluids, and medications to corn-allergic patients.   Otherwise, it could be interpreted that hospitals are discriminating against the corn allergy population.

After one of the state hospital associations informed me that it was not their responsibility to contact their member hospitals with our corn allergy awareness message/documentation, and instructed me to contact every hospital within the United States; I have been contacting individual hospitals/health systems in each state for the last couple of years.  As I now complete a state, I will update the list on my blog.
