I'm an ER nurse in a diverse area. I've seen many useful websites/charts/books for medical/nursing translation into Spanish, which I've found very useful in practice. I've noticed a prominant Arab population is serviced by my facility and I was wondering if anyone has any useful suggestions for learning key phrases in Arabic (clearly not has easy to learn as Spanish!). Things like:
Hello, my name is ___________ I'm going to be your nurse.
I need to start and IV to give you medicine.
We need to draw blood for some tests.
The doctor will be with you as soon as possible.
Do you have pain?
Point to where it hursts?
How much Pain 0-10?
Take a deep breath in... and exhale.
Do you have any allergies to meds or food?
