Angela you are absolutely right, covid has taken a toll on how healthcare is being done. Staffing has been short, nonessential staff was let go and restrictions were in place with restricting amount of people in a patients room. Through these times I have observed that telephone interpreting and video interpreting to be used more. Though this was great during those times I have also noticed people either got comfortable with using machines or using bilingual staff non-interpeting which goes against the executive order. what state are you in?
