Interpreter Services


Passavant Area Hospital provides interpreters for hearing impaired and non-English speaking patients whenever communication is necessary for the care of the patient. Interpreters are also provided for community health education programs.

An interpreter is requested when a hearing impaired or non-English speaking patient or caretaker of a patient presents to the Emergency Department, when an initial evaluation is being done, when a surgical consent is being obtained, when a patient is immediately postoperative, when a patient is in labor and delivery, when an invasive radiology procedure is being done, when decisions regarding resuscitation or advanced life support measures are being discussed, when discharge instructions are being given, and when the family or patient requests an interpreter.

To contact Interpreter Services, please call 245-9541, ext. 3508.

Monica Schriber Honored With Daisy Award

Posted on: August 18, 2017

Monica Schriber, RN, Emergency Department, is the newest recipient of the Daisy Award. Passavant partners with the Daisy Foundation to give the award each quarter to a registered nurse or licensed practical nurse who consistently demonstrates excellence through clinical expertise and extraordinary compassionate care. “At this point in my nursing career, receiving the Daisy Award is very special to me,” said Monica. "It means a lot, but I couldn’t do it without my co-workers. They all helped. I work with a great team.” Monica was nominated for the Daisy Award by a grateful co-worker: “Monica provided excellent care of a patient presenting in the Emergency Department with injuries following an assault. The patient was paranoid, apprehensive, scared and had difficulties trusting staff. Monica provided care and comfort to the patient for over nine hours. Upon discharge, the patient had no ride home. Monica made numerous calls to family, friends and transportation agencies before finally talking with Social Services, who helped provide a taxi ride home. I want to commend Monica for her passion, support and willingness to do everything she could to provide this patient with the care and safety needed. This is an example of a true leader in our department and I’m very proud to have Monica as an advocate for our patients, families and staff.”
