Language barriers can have serious consequences
There is an increased risk of misdiagnosis when language barriers exist between the patient and the healthcare personnel.
Misdiagnosis is likely to lead to mistreatment.
Prolonged hospital stay
Patients with limited language proficiency usually stay longer in the emergency room (approximately 30 minutes) and stay 4 days longer in hospitals than the average patient.
Misdiagnosis, mistreatment, complications, prolonged hospitalization and increased readmissions all increase costs for healthcare providers. In addition, healthcare professionals are likely to take more samples and do more research on patients who do not master the language
