Some of the errors I found:
-She is not speaking to the patient in the first person.
-The interpreter did not interpret exactly what she mentioned equivalent to, she could have mentioned the name and then explained what it was.
-She did not explain C.A.T scan
-I believe she did not translate word for word.
-Talking about other stuff other than related to the appointment.
-Did not interpret about the phone call
-Patient did not want to disclose to the doctor about spitting up blood.
-the interpreter did not explain what an endoscopy is and assumed the patient knows what it is.
-the doctor spoke in Spanish
Correct examples
-she had a pre-session with the patient
-she was speaking in first person
The interpreter was using her fingers to retain her memory when recalling items
The interpreter nicely declined about giving a ride.
