With theU.S. becoming an increasingly popular international tourist destination, thereÌs a good chance youÌll encounter patients who donÌt speak English. Interpreters are great if you have one handy, and telephone translators are available if you can place a call. But the ability to have a translator in your vehicle is part of an excellent communications plan. The newMediFlag Bookletis a 24-page reusable text that enables medical personnel to conduct an initial medical assessment of a patient who doesnÌt speak English. The book is available in Arabic, Chinese, Farsi, French, German, Haitian Creole, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish, Tagalog and Vietnamese.
