I have a Spanish medical report that I need translated into English

I have a Spanish medical report that I need translated into English

A medical report is a complicated document to translate. A professional translator must do this to avoid mistakes. Indeed, an error in the medical field is not a trivial error and can have terrible consequences !

   Remember the case of the over-irradiated patients of the hospital of Épinal, in France. 

Two practitioners were sentenced to 4 years in prison for manslaughter and unintentional injury, and failure to assist a person in danger: they had mistranslated a manual for a new machine, which caused the premature death of twelve patients.
