I wrote my Spanish children’s book about diversity in the hospital. I have worked in hospitals for almost three years, and have utilized translators/interpreters to communicate with patients that do not speak English fluently. As a hospital technician, I want my patients to fully understand what the process will be for procedures, and having hospital staff that can explain to them helps ensure they do understand. It has also been shown that for patients having diverse staff that they can more readily relate to helps them feel more comfortable and can even speed the recovery process. Many of the patients I have worked with have been young children, so this topic was near and dear to me in helping them to feel more comfortable with having to visit the hospital, and identify with diverse staff to help realize their own potential.
