In an increasingly diverse American culture, healthcare facilities face a real challenge when assisting patients who speak another language. Failing to communicate clearly can not only be inconvenient and frustrating, it can even be dangerous.
Overcoming language barriers can lead to these important results and more:
- improved patient satisfaction
- improved health outcomes
- increased efficiencies
- reduction in treatment time
- lower readmission rates
While bilingual staff who are trained to assist can be helpful, it's often inefficient and difficult to have the right person available at the right time to handle every situation.
The use of professional interpreters, and the translation of vital documents and patient education materials are critical to bridging language and cultural barriers.
