The right to have a support person with a patient for all health/medical care

During COVID-19 Pandemic and any future pandemics, we the people ask that Congress support the issue of allowing a support person to be with a patient for all medical appointments, medical procedures, and all hospital visits/stays. With regards to children, we are asking Congress to further support the issue of allowing both parents/legal guardians to be allowed with patient/child for all medical appointments, all medical procedures, and all hospital visits/stays. With regards to senior living and nursing homes, we ask that a support person be allowed to visit at least once a day. This petition is for the entire United States of America.
Support persons are critical to the mental health wellbeing of the person/patient/resident. A FaceTime, Zoom, or any other technology way of communication does not replace and the positive impact that having a physical support person present can do. It is not the same thing and it is not the same feeling. The presence of a human is not the same as the presence of technology. Having a support person present can reduce stress, anxiety, and fear.
