American Hospital English


This is a book of 29 English language puzzles and exercises for anyone interested in the type of English language used in American hospitals. It can be used by all levels of both native and non-native speakers of English, professionals and non-professionals who are already working or others pursuing medical or healthcare studies. All of the vocabulary and phrases in this book are comprised of at least one or more elements of the subjects of anatomy and physiology, health and disease, diagnostics, surgical interventions, pharmacology, policies and procedures, job descriptions, equipment and/or patient care situations. The authentic language includes colloquial and slang terms while modeling phrases and repeating grammatical forms used in a healthcare context. Many of the phrases resemble those that may be encountered during classes or examinations for various healthcare occupations. Drawings provide visual cues to help contextualize the language. It can be a fun and challenging way to become familiar with the words, sentences, abbreviations and symbols of the American hospital environment. This book may also be of value to instructors of language or healthcare.
