Spanish for Healthcare Providers

Spanish for Healthcare Providers is a free service provided by Maria Oliveira Language Learning Center.  We believe that learning even a few easy phrases will increase your language skills and the ability to communicate with your Spanish speaking patients and clients.  Study and practice the following sentences, and once you know them, you will be able to explain to the patient what you are going to do and they will be more at ease.

The verb necesitar, which means, to need, can be followed by an infinitive making it easier to form a statement since the second verb doesn’t need to be conjugated.

Study the following Spanish Phrases for Healthcare Providers examples:

Necesito cambiar la venda.
I need to change the bandage.

Necesito darle unas gotas.
I need to give you a few drops.

Necesito darle un calmante.
I need to give you a sedative.

Necesito tomarle el pulso.
