Hello! I see that you are back, how have you been?
Hola! Usted tiene que operarse.
When there is a lack of interpreters, many Hispanics/Latinos do not completely understand everything that professionals say.
Can you tell her she needs an operation done.
Sometimes there is no interpreters and the medical professionals do not know Spanish, therefore they cannot communicate with their patients.
Hola! En qué le puedo ayudar?
For Hispanics/Latinos it is important to build a relationship with someone when speaking about personal issues. Understanding how to approach a patient is important for cultural competence.
Providing interpreters for patients allow them to always be informed about their health.
Sometimes when interpreters are unavailable, medical professionals may need to know some Spanish to communicate with their patients.
