When communicating in English is not possible or advisable, St. Joseph
Hospital is committed to providing interpreter services in order to maintain
efficient and adequate communications with patients and families in their
primary language. This includes services for patients/families who use/need
sign language or Telecommunication Devices for the Deaf (TDD) to communicate.
The hospital contracts with outside agencies for services and maintains
a roster of staff to meet the need, as well as provides Video Remote and
Telephonic interpreters. Televisions in patient rooms are closed captioned.
The hospital also provides individual TTD devices for use in patient rooms.
