Everything You Need, Logically Organized for quick reference. Even if no translation services are available, this book will help you and your staff obtain the necessary information and provide the treatment needed, quickly and effectively. You'll find all the phrases needed to obtain a worker's personal and company information, explain vital signs and obtain an initial history, sort out the mechanism of injury or illness, examine the patient, and explain the diagnosis. Discharge forms make sure the patient understands how to care for his injury or illness, when he should return to work or restricted work, and when he should follow up with the doctor or other healthcare professional.

This valuable quick-reference tool will streamline the entire process of taking patient information, examining patients, providing treatment, and ensuring proper follow-up. It will give employers and their Spanish-speaking workers confidence in your facility and your personnel. And it will reduce the likelihood of communication glitches that can have a negative and sometimes disastrous impact on treatment effectiveness and patient relations.
