Spanish to English translations [PRO] Medical - Medical (general)
Spanish term or phrase:Sui____ Hom____
I am translating a prescription from a Puerto Rican psychiatrist from Spanish to English and there are two abbreviations at the top of the prescription that I am unfamiliar with. The top of the prescription looks like this:
Edad _____ Sui_____ Hom_____ Duración______
If anyone can tell me what Sui and Hom stand for I would greatly appreciate it. Thank you in advance for you help.
Thank you all for your input. I still think these categories are a bit odd on a prescription and would have made more sense on an evaluation but Suicide and Homicide appear to be the best answer. I apologize for the lack of information but it was all I had. Thank you again.
Thank you. I am not an expert in the medical field, but I read the asker's question to mean "does the patient show suicidal/homicidal tendencies?". The physician should then indicate on the report "yes" or "no". However, it would appear that the asker has rejected this option and with so little context posted, or to go on, it is hard to imagine what the "Sui" and "Hom" stand for. Again thank you. Regards.
The drug is Paxil CR 12.5. I do not know what the patient is suffering from or why they were prescribed this drug, I can only guess. From the appearance of the prescription this line that I am asking about is something that is fixed and is on all the doctor's prescriptions.
So what drug is it then? This may clue someone into the condition/illness the patient is experiencing, or do you know what the patient is suffering from? These details will help so that someone qualified can help you. The context is woefully lacking!
Thank you for your response. I don't believe so. It's the top portion of the prescription itself. It is typed but the only information filled in was the patient's age in the space next to "edad". Below this the doctor has handwritten the drug that he prescribed.
