Madonna believes we must be receptive and responsive to our patients’ and their families’ cultural backgrounds, preferred language and styles of communication in order to provide the highest quality of care. Dignity and respect are the foundation of our interactions with you and your family.
It is the goal of Madonna to create and maintain a culture in which patients and staff are able to openly and accurately exchange information. If you or your family has limited English proficiency, we will provide language assistance.
Madonna contracts with professional interpretive services through Internal Communications Incorporated and The Nebraska Commission for Deaf or Hard of Hearing. Such services will be provided by qualified language interpreters, sign language interpreters and telephonic interpretation. This means you can be assured the message is delivered completely and accurately, any cultural biases are removed, and your confidentiality is maintained. It also means that we can be assured we are understanding and meeting your needs.
For help with your communication needs, please contact any one of our staff members.
