Report: Language help better for patients at New York hospitals

AP/Washington Post, April 21, 2008
The New York Immigration Coalition and other groups have released a report on the availability of language assistance at city hospitals for non-English-speaking patients. The report says that such help at hospitals seems to have improved since 2006, when state health officials began regulating communication between hospitals and their non-English-speaking patients. Much more still needs to be done, however, particularly regarding languages such as Korean, Haitian Creole, Russian, Arabic and Bengali, the report states.
