Yes. Hospitals may be able to make the case for not allowing service animals into certain areas of their facility if a legitimate direct threat/health and safety risk exists, such as in patient rooms, the emergency room, or Intensive Care Unit. However the animal should still be allowed in more public parts of the hospital such as cafeterias and waiting rooms. Also, churches and religious entities are exempt from ADA Title II and Title III obligations; therefore they do not have to allow a service animal access under the law. Private home owners also have the right to ask that you not bring your service animal with you into their home. The only time Title II and Title III covered entities have the right to deny access is if the service animal has posed a legitimate health and safety risk or direct threat or if their presence has fundamentally altered the nature of the business. For example, if a service animal is out of the handler's control, causes a major disturbance (i.e. barking uncontrollably), or hurts another person, then the public or private entity would have the right to request that the owner remove the animal.
