Hello everyone
I am a French/English medical translator, and looking for hospital forms, to practice translating.
Of course I know I would want access only to blank forms, as otherwise confidentiality issues are invovled.
I have done multiple searches using "rapports hôpitaux" and "fiches hôpitaux" as well as "dossiers des patients" to no avail.
Any suggestions are appreciated.

Not on internet Apr 12, 2010

I don't think you will find many of these documents on the internet because a) most hospitals have special websites for 'insiders' that are only accessible with a user name and password, and b) many hospitals are phasing out written records and replacing them with electronic systems.

Check theses sites:

While these are not "hospital records", the samples may be quite useful if you just want to familiarize yourself with the wording and structure of medical reports.

Google for "medical report samples" for more options.

Thanks to Tina and Johanna for answering my post.

Johanna, I did see some very interesting reports on those sites, but they are in English.
I am looking for forms in French to study.

Canadian Websites Apr 13, 2010

Hi Jessie,

I would suggest looking at websites for hospitals in Canada.

Here are some French-language forms I found on an insurance website:

Thank you Marlene. I have bookmarked the site.

And thanks to Jordan also.
The site is exactly what I was looking for.
As a registered nurse in New York, I have seen thousands of hospital forms, but I wanted to see some in French to familiarize myself with the terminology.

Confidential matters Oct 8, 2010

I did some French-Thai hospital record translations but they were personal information. I guess that no one can disclose on Internet without permission of the specific patients. In addition, many handwritten parts are too poor in quality to read [and translate] --- very unclear characters that risk translation mistakes.
