Interpreters


Passavant Area Hospital provides interpreters for hearing impaired or 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.
