The freaking interpreter never showed for my deaf-blind friend's medical appointment. :headdesk: :headdesk:

What bothers me is this isn't the first time this has happened, nor the first doctor's office I've witnessed this problem in.

It drives me up a wall, because I used to BE the person who arranged for interpreters at a specialist's medical clinic and I never, ever ONCE forgot to arrange for one. And on the occasions when I have been the free-lance interpreter, I never, EVER missed an appointment without calling to notify someone that there was a crisis.

So I honestly don't understand how a deaf-blind person could have a medical appointment and the 'terp just Not Show Up and not call ahead. Whether the doctor's office or the interpreter is the source of the problem, this sort of thing shouldn't happen.
