Does your company provide translators?Register Today!
- by MJB2010 Mar 5, '12I worked for one of the big 2 dialysis companies. We had patients from Laos, Cambodia, Mexico, etc etc and we were not provided with translators. When asked I was told to call a family member. Isn't this a hippa violation? Shouldn't the company be responsible for providing translators? I was told the service was too expensive. That,in my opinion, is unacceptable.

In my area, there are few to no sign language interpreters.
