“With the growth of Spanish-speaking patients in the health care system,
it is even more important now for staff and new employees to have a basic
understanding of Spanish medical terminology. Without a doubt, I would
encourage my staff and new employees to take a course in Spanish
medical terminology to be a better health care partner.”
