Certified Medical Interpreter
For patients who come from different cultures and have limited proficiency in English, there are few situations more frightening, frustrating, and intimidating than conversations with medical professionals. Patients may have trouble accurately describing their physical or mental needs, personal and family medical histories, and have confidence in their understanding of procedures or medications needed to ensure either their immediate or lasting health.
These kinds of situations also put a strain on medical professionals, who will not gain enough information from patients to accurately provide them care. Because of the lack of efficient communication, medical professionals may be unaware of any allergies patients may have to certain medications or fall into cultural misunderstandings, which could lead to mistrust, and in worst case scenarios, liability concerns. The consequences of inefficient communication between medical professionals and their patients can be drastic and at times fatal, as information could be crucial in the event of a medical emergency.
Our team of highly qualified and certified interpreters can offer premier phone or person-to-person interpretation services to medical professionals in hospitals, nursing homes, private practices, rehabilitation centers, pharmacies, clinics, and anywhere where patients go for medical assistance.
