ROSWELL, Ga. — North Fulton Hospital added Spanish interpretation services for all units in the facility 24 hours each day, seven days a week.

These services have been added for patient satisfaction and comfort, particularly in trauma and childbirth situations, said Beth Downs, a hospital spokeswoman.

The interpreters are highly qualified with extensive education, training or certification in interpretation, and they will serve in rotation so that the hospital always has an interpreter available to patients.

Five full-time interpreters and one part-time interpreter began providing services on Aug. 12.

"We are very excited to have the interpreters on staff at North Fulton Hospital," said Linda Farrow, director of women's services. "This is truly an asset for our Spanish-speaking patients."

The hospital offers Language Line services for all other languages that a patient may speak, so that caregivers and patients may speak to one another in any language that is most comfortable.
