van Rosse F, de Bruijne M, Suurmond J, Essink-Bot ML, Wagner C. Int J Nurs Stud. 2015 Mar 25; [Epub ahead of print].

This mixed methods study of language barriers and patient safety found incomplete documentation of language proficiency and suboptimal use of professional language interpretation, consistent with prior studies. In a past AHRQ WebM&M interview, Dr. Dean Schillinger discusses safety and limited English proficiency.
