Patient Liaisons


Liaison and translation service at the local Italian hospital, Ospedale San Bortolo.


Scope of Services: 

EMERGENCY CARE: Patient Liaisons will translate for the evaluation process. The Triage nurse will assign the assessment classification according to the case severity.  Diagnostic choices will be made at discretion of the attending Emergency Room Physician.

·         In the Emergency Room (ER) you will check in at the TRIAGE Desk, where the Patient Liaison will join you to assist with the ER evaluation process.

·         Patient Liaisons will provide a verbal summary of the care to the patient and will send a message in MHS Genesis to the patient’s Primary Care Manager (PCM) at the Ederle Clinic / Del Din Clinic within 24 hours from the ER encounter. If additional care is recommended at the ER, a follow up appointment with your PCM Team will be necessary. 

OBSTETRIC EMERGENCY CARE: Access the Obstetric ER from the outside (2nd door on the right, after the General ER entrance). 

INPATIENT CARE: Patient Liaisons are available for translation and communication support between the patient and the San Bortolo Hospital medical staff. 

OUTPATIENT CARE: Patient Liaisons accompany and provide translation and communication support for all encounters scheduled at the San Bortolo Hospital.

·         Patient Liaisons will provide verbal summary of the care received to the patient and will send a message in MHS Genesis to the patient’s PCM at the Ederle Clinic / Del Din Clinic. If additional care is recommended, a follow up appointment with your PCM Team will be necessary. 

OB-GYN CLINIC: This clinic is a contracted out medical facility, which supports the Vicenza Military Community. The Patient Liaison staff does not provide translation support for this English-speaking Service.

·         For scheduled OB/GYN appointments, please go directly to the OB/GYN Clinic (main entrance, first corridor on the right, first elevator on the right, 3rd floor).
