Hello. My name is XXXXX XXXXX I will be happy to answer your question.

There is no specific law that requires hospitals to provide patients with a call/emergency light/button, but because hospitals have to exercise proper care when they have patients in their care/facility most hospitals are equipped with a call/light buttons for the use and safety of the patients.
