As a patient, you have lots of rights. But as a patient who’s Deaf, Hard of Hearing or Limited English Proficient, you need (and should have) even more. Did you know that you have:
- The right to be understood and to understand those around you
- The right to receive care without delay
- The right to have a qualified medical interpreter who adheres not only to U.S. laws and requirements, but also to a national Code of Ethics
- The right to an interpreter who will be neutral
At Language Access Network, we’re here to honor those rights. That’s why our highly trained, qualified, patient-centered interpreters are available to hospitals across the country at the push of a button. 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Because we want you to have and understand all the information you need to make critical decisions about your health and the care you receive. And that’s only right.
