The National Board of Certification for Medical Interpreters has about 500 certified interpreters, said Tina Pea, board president. The program is offered in Spanish and is expanding to Mandarin, Russian and possibly African languages, said Pea, who is also an instructor at Tulsa Community College.
More hospitals and clinics are realizing the need to use trained interpreters, Pea said. In some cases, hospitals have had to settle lawsuits because of errors attributed to language barriers, she said.
Pea teaches her students not only about medical terminology and privacy laws but also familiarizes them with home remedies popular in Hispanic cultures, such as passing an egg over a sick person to chase away evil spirits.
