In healthcare settings where patients and healthcare providers do not share a common language, it is common that language barriers between these two parties can decrease the effectiveness of the diagnosis, reduce patients’ satisfaction and impair the patients’ understanding of diagnoses and medications.These possible miscommunications impede on the patients’ ability to comply fully with the discharge treatment plan and ultimately, affect their recovery process and well-being.
