I work for the VA hospital in San Diego, on the Spinal Cord Injury Unit. Unfortunately I do not have time to complete this assignment. In regards to LGBT, we implement the Don’t Ask Don’t Tell. We don’t really have many female patients, and the male veterans do not discuss their sexuality preference. If they were gay, I wouldn’t know. Also, all of the staff respectfully treats all patients the same without bias.

If you need more information or need me to fill out the questionnaires please contact me at 619-905-5538. I really do not care how the questionnaires are filled out as my professor does not know my hospital and doesn’t care.
