Communicate immediately with Spanish-speaking patients simply by turning the page As a medical professional, you need to be prepared for anything. But what if that anything is a language barrier with your Spanish-speaking patients? McGraw-Hill's Medical Spanish Visual Phrasebook helps you overcome this difficulty and understand your patients' needs. With no experience in the language, you can locate an accident victim's injury; find out how long a pregnant woman has been in labor; let an elderly man know you are starting an IV; and reassure a worried parent that an interpreter is on the way. McGraw-Hill's Medical Spanish Visual Phrasebook works in three easy steps: Point to each question. Patient responds with a simple head nod, with a "yes" or "no" answer, or by pointing to a diagram. Continue using the phrasebook to assist with patient assessment. Just point and flip, and you can close the communication gap between you and your Spanish-speaking patients.
