Description
The Medical Emergency Communication ("MEC") booklet is a communication tool for use in case of a medical emergency. It works as a visual language translator for first responders who encounter patients with limited to no English proficiency and no interpreter is available. The MEC book facilitates information exchange between patients and medical personnel through the use of images coupled with basic words and phrases translated into 7 languages. Sections of the book can also assist with taking the patient's medical history, communicating treatment and procedure orders, hospital patient discharge, and admission.This pictorial resource should be used in any situation in which communicating with patients is difficult due to language barriers. It can be used in disasters or other emergency conditions, hospital settings, and nursing homes. It is printed on durable matte board to avoid glare during outdoor use, with plastic spiral binding so the book lays flat and is easily handled. The MEC book is an excellent tool for enhancing communication between medical personnel and patients having different language backgrounds in emergency situations.
