Doctors Should Not Skirt the Law When it Comes to Providing an Interpreter


Please read this article by clicking here; as it is extremely helpful. 
Doctors, more than ever, must make interpreters available for appointments. In rural areas this may be more difficult, but in urban areas the law is the default. Most medical practices today have been bought, and are under the auspices of, large medical institutions. The ADA exceptions of less than 15 employees and financial hardship for the practice are now moot. 

Deaf people must stand up for their rights to have a live interpreter, whenever possible. VRI is the option of last resort. To not provide an interpreter is not only foolish, in most instances it is illegal.
