Maine Hospital Is Offering Visitor & Staff Inclusive Pronoun Pins
According to WGME news 13, Eastern Maine Medical Center in Bangor is making changes that allow them to be more inclusive. Northern Light Health is now offering gender pronoun buttons to be worn by staff, patients, and visitors.
These buttons are part of a pilot program and could be something we see at many other hospitals in the upcoming days.
“As healthcare professionals, the team at Northern Light Eastern Maine Medical Center promises to treat all with compassion, dignity, and respect no matter race, sexual orientation, background, or social standing. While progress toward true social and medical justice in our society will take time, the Medical Center has made tremendous strides in that work, and given great attention to diversity, equity, and inclusiveness,” Eastern Maine Medical Center said in a press release.
Northern Light is encouraging all guests to wear a pin so that staff and other visitors can greet you in the way you want to be.
It really doesn't take much to offer your support to others around you, so I also encourage you to do so.
