Mass General Brigham Speech Code for Patients

Leftists have subverted medical education (see here, here, and here). Before long, this will have devastating effects on our health, as qualifications are abandoned in favor of identity box checking and training is dumbed down accordingly. The effects of moonbats having taken over the administration of hospitals will be more immediate:

“Words or actions that are disrespectful, racist, discriminatory, hostile, or harassing are not welcome” at Mass General Brigham (MGB), according to a “Patient Code of Conduct” imposed this fall after a year of development.

MGB includes the highly prestigious and therefore influential Brigham and Women’s Hospital and Massachusetts General Hospital.

The Patient Code of Conduct is a speech code. It applies to patients, families, visitors, and research participants.

The code covers … “offensive comments about others’ race, accent, religion, gender, sexual orientation, or other personal traits” or refusal to see staff based on those traits.

As for those who violate the speech code,

MGB warns that it may ask them to “make other plans for their care” in response to some violations. They might also be banned from “future non-emergency care.”

No minimum number of violations is given, nor is it explained who determines when thoughtcrime has been committed.

Failure to use preferred pronouns could constitute “harassment,” disputing the existence of systemic racism could be deemed “racist,” and favoring equal access to care over equity could be labeled “discriminatory,” according to Do No Harm.

That medical care would be provided on a racial basis is a legitimate concern:

Do No Harm noted that one of MGB’s founding members and Harvard Med’s training hospital, Brigham and Women’s, launched a pilot last year that explicitly granted “preferential care based on race” to redress past wrongs, even while acknowledging it might be illegal.

It won’t be illegal for long if Democrats have their way.

Antiwhite racism appears to be rampant at MGB, as noted at Behind the Black:

MGB’s website shows it to be totally invested in the agendas of critical race theory as well as diversity, equity, and inclusion. The top of its About page includes a link to a description of its “Commitment to Diversity, Equity and Inclusion,” which describes in careful terms the quota policies the hospital now follows, designed to choose minorities in hiring rather than those with better medical qualifications.

Modern liberalism is pernicious and insane. It can only be imposed by force. The regulation of all speech everywhere is as inevitable as the confiscation of firearms if progressives are not pried away from power.

Already, getting canceled by militantly tolerant liberals for saying something that contradicts their ideology can cost you employment. Soon it may cost you your health.
