Women deserve safe healthcare.

Women deserve safe healthcare. If a facility is providing medical procedures to women, it should meet the same standard as any medical facility. It is ludicrous to subject women to medical care that is of lower quality than they deserve. Why implement quality measures for medical facilities if they are not important or necessary? If quality standards are necessary then they should apply to those facilities serving women as well. The women in my life deserve to receive the same quality care as the men! If you wish to lower those standards then lower the standards for all medical facilities.

Protect our women! Any facility performing procedures on women should be required to meet rigorous quality requirements for all of our sakes. If a facility cannot provide those standards, they need to improve before treating our mothers, daughters, spouses, sisters.

Thank you for your time and consideration.
