Oregon hospital looking for Klingon speakers

I just heard this on the local radio station, and I can't believe our tax dollars are being spent on this. From the story: "The fictional language of the popular TV and movie science fiction series is one of about 55 languages needed by the office that treats mental health patients in metropolitan Multnomah County. ... If a patient speaks only Klingon, the county is obligated to respond with a Klingon interpreter. So officials have decided to include it with about 55 languages, some of which, such as Russian and Vietnamese, are widely spoken, and some, such as Dari and Tongan, are seldom spoken."

If a patient only speaks Klingon, are they worth saving? At least you can use Google in Klingon.
