The stakes of the miscommunication are as high as they can be in the medical industry, with lives, expensive medication, and your institution’s reputation on the line. The potential consequences of a wrong decision must be considered when deciding on healthcare translation services.

It’s important that every patient that comes to your medical facility receives a good healthcare experience. A lack of ability to speak or understand a country’s main language should not interfere with adequate medical care. To ensure quality care, you want everyone to be able to clearly and effectively communicate, and for that, you need professional medical translation from a healthcare translations company like GlobalSpeak Translations.

Our certified medical translators can translate consent forms, prescription information, and other important medical documents. For effective patient care, our trusted team of specialized medical interpreters facilitate live communication between patients and healthcare professionals. These services allow for patient safety and patient satisfaction as they are able to receive medical care, no matter what language they speak. Through GlobalSpeak Translations, you can receive healthcare translation services that are reliable and trustworthy.

Ensure Patient Safety

“First do no harm” is an important promise healthcare professionals make with themselves, but it can be a difficult one to keep if language barriers are getting in the way of communication. There are so many different moments where a lack of translation or a mistake in translation could lead to a medical disaster. Without high quality healthcare translation services, the patient’s life could be put at risk by an inability to communicate with the doctors resulting in misdiagnosis, a lack of consent because of not truly knowing what’s being agreed to, or an incorrect prescription.

Just one small miscommunication can lead to a lot of harm that could be avoided by simply investing in reputable healthcare translation services. As more and more people travel or move to countries where the language is different than their own, it is important that healthcare organizations invest in these translation services so that everyone can get quality medical care without worrying about language barriers getting in the way. You can ensure that your own patients stay safe by turning to GlobalSpeak Translations for your medical interpreting and translation services.

Our certified medical translators will make sure consent forms are up to standards in the patient’s own language, patients lives aren’t endangered by a lack of ability to communicate, and that every step in healthcare process is safe from translation errors. Request your quote from GlobalSpeak Translations for the translation of patient information, consent forms, or any other medical documents, and we’ll get back to you soon.

Comply To The Standards Of The Government And The Public

The public has certain expectations for the effort that healthcare organizations will put in to ensure communication or other factors don’t interfere with the quality of care a patient receives. The government sets actual standards and regulations to ensure that organizations are doing what they can to provide quality healthcare without communication barriers interfering. Not complying with either the government’s or the public’s standards could both land you into some trouble.

People in general may not notice right away if translation standards are not being set properly, but the public will definitely notice if something goes wrong because of it. The damage to your reputation that a critical translation typo, spread like wildfire over social media or by word of mouth, can do may be enough to destroy your organization, before the government even has a chance to say anything.

Government standards almost always necessitate quality translations. The United States, for example, requires its hospitals to offer some type of translation services for patients that require them, whether that’s an in-person interpreter or another form of quality translation services. Each country has its laws and regulations, and they may be vastly different than those we have here in the United States. Regardless of the country, governments can be strict and even a small mistake caused by inadequate translation could put you out of compliance.

If the government has reason to find fault due to translation, you face the consequences of breaking the law. You may think it’s only the translation of a few words, but if those few words change the meaning of prescription instructions, causing an unintentional overdose, it will become pretty clear why accurate translation is important.

Don’t make the mistake of receiving medical translations that aren’t done by a professional translation with certified medical translators who only produce quality work. Turn to GlobalSpeak Translations for consent authorization forms, patient information, and all other medical documents that are translated in a way that complies with the standards of the government and the public.

Adapt To Global Changes

Healthcare translation doesn’t only deal with the translation services of day to day healthcare processes and interactions, but also with translating information that brings healthcare organizations up to date with new global changes. New advances are being made everyday in the healthcare industry. Translators are needed to allow these medical discoveries to reach a global stage.

Just one example of a newly approved product that is now being widely introduced to the public is cannabis. Cannabis products are quickly gaining momentum in the healthcare field among various countries and states that are now giving it legal approval because of its numerous documented medical benefits. Global communication is essential for those investors, operators, and entrepreneurs who are focused on expanding their business networks, especially with products such as cannabis.

GlobalSpeak Translations can help you keep up with the competition of other healthcare organizations with translations that don’t leave you behind the times. Our certified medical translators are specialized to the medical industry. To keep up to date and at the top of their game for translating healthcare documents, our translators frequently dive into medical research through industry journals and other means, tracking the latest in medical discoveries.
