Did You know That

360 Translations is the ONLY sign language interpreter agency in South Jersey with 24/7 emergency interpreting services.

Scenario

The doctors are making critical decision concerning your child’s care, and they are trying, with much exasperation, to get your child’s medical background and other pertinent information so they can appropriately administer care to your child, who is now in critical condition.

Scenario

Because the facility won’t provide you an interpreter, you must resort to writing notes back-and-forth in English, which is not your native language, and the process is extremely time-consuming. Time is of the essence. Pretty chilling, isn’t it? Until very recently, this situation played out in many hospitals throughout the U.S. That is the reason an emergency sign language interpreter is so vital.

The Fact

Deaf and Hard of Hearing people have taken action, and continue to do so, holding medical institutions accountable, demanding full compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (ADA), which guarantees equal access to communication at public institutions

EMERGENCY SERVICES ARE UTILIZED FOR THE FOLLOWING SCENARIOS:

  • Emergency Room / Trauma
  • Psychiatric Crisis, both voluntary and involuntary admissions/assessments
  • Law Enforcement arrests and interrogations
  • Judicial arraignments and emergent matters (Restraining Orders, Protections from Abuse, etc.)
  • DYFS and CYF interventions
  • Last-minute substation for contract interpreters at educational institutions

Please call 360 Translations at 856-356-2922, 24/7, 365 days a year. All emergency calls are dispatched to our interpreting office and handled promptly for the immediate dispatch of an interpreter for your location.

360 Translations understands the critical role that the interpreter plays when conveying medical information to Deaf and Hard of Hearing patients. This includes the fact that many Deaf persons, through no fault of their own (English is often not their first language), have limited English proficiency.The Association of Medical Colleges has identified this deficit and is working to train their medical students to work more cooperatively with interpreters (see Guidelines for Use of Medical Interpreter Services).360 Translation’s interpreters are highly skilled in medical terminology and adhere to all HIPAA guidelines as a tertiary participant in the Deaf and Hard of Hearing individual’s health care.Please call 360 Translations at 856-356-2922, or email us at staff@360translations.com, so that we can help you in meeting all needs as they pertain to getting your Medical Sign Language Interpreter.
