MEDICAL INTERPRETATION AND THE LAW: REGULATIONS IN THE U.S.

Download Your Free Ebook

There is no one universal set of interpretation standards that hospitals and clinics must follow, but rather an amalgam of laws handed down from the federal and state level. Too often, LEP patients and physicians alike aren’t aware of medical interpretation requirements, and a lack of knowledge is bad for both parties.

This ebook will examine some of the core U.S. laws and policies that regulate medical interpretation at the federal level, with the hope that imparting this information will give healthcare providers a better sense of their responsibilities, while helping LEP patients to better understand their rights.
