A California hospital has defended its English-only policy as essential to patient care in response to a lawsuit by Filipino workers claiming they were the sole ethnic group targeted by the rule. Delano Regional Medical Center said in a statement Wednesday that plaintiffs’ allegations are baseless and their financial demands could threaten to jeopardize quality medical care in the rural farming community about 30 miles north of Bakersfield.
