Standard readiness: Targeting patient provider communications


Part 5 of 12



Staff qualifications must be determined by the hospital (HR.01.02.01).



  • Note 4 has been added under EP1 (job responsibilities include staff qualification) requiring the hospital to define and provide proficiency for interpreters and translators.
  • The hospital has to make a judgment on how to address proficiency and training to relate with health care issues. Some hospitals are currently requiring translators to be certified or at least have completed an educational course. So, you need to be able to articulate your process in this area.
