There’s nothing more precious to parents than their children. When their health is compromised, parents will do whatever they can to ensure they receive the proper treatment. But, what happens when the parents do not speak the same language as the treating physicians? Without proper communication, it’s difficult for parents to receive the assurance needed that their children are receiving the necessary care. Plus, it limits their ability to ask questions or relay pertinent information. It’s also impossible for doctors to discharge or release patients with at-home instructions if the parents don’t understand the given directions. Pediatric interpreters are essential to a positive experience with the doctors, patients, and parents. These valuable professionals are making a difference in the lives of individuals across the nation.
