Misdiagnosis

There is an increased risk of misdiagnosis when language barriers exist between the patient and the healthcare giver.

Mistreatment

The misdiagnosis is likely to lead to mistreatment.

Complications

Besides maltreatment, lack of or incorrect communication itself can lead to complications for the patient.

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.

Increased readmissions

Patients with limited language proficiency have 60% higher inclination to seek care in emergency care than the average patient. There is 50% higher risk of these patients being hospitalized and 20% more likely to seek care within 72 hours after discharge.
