Hospitals and Medical Services In Bali
While on your much-awaited tropical getaway to Bali, you don’t really want to do anything else except soak up the sun, enjoy the water, shop, explore and play but let’s face it – you might run into some unpleasant situations without meaning to! You’ve heard of the infamous Bali Belly, a moniker for the dreaded diarrhea and while accidents could happen especially on the roads and in the water while surfing, worst case scenarios could entail dengue fever and typhoid infections.
While accidents can happen wherever you may be, it is always best to be prepared. We’d recommend that you get yourself and your loved ones insured before taking off. It is also a good idea to get vaccinated for typhoid, hepatitis A and B, tetanus and rabies. Don’t forget to bring along some insect repellent to use while you’re in Bali to protect yourself against the Aedes Mosquito. There are plenty of organic repellents available in pharmacies now.
In worst case scenarios, you might need to see a doctor or a specialist. Bali has excellent hospitals with qualified doctors and staff available 24-hours a day. These hospitals have gained fantastic reputations for themselves for being extremely advanced with the latest state-of-the-art medical equipment, air ambulances, multilingual staff and specialists with the knowledge to handle difficult emergency disciplines. Many of these hospitals are also internationally accredited. Here are some of the best hospitals on the island that we would recommend to our guests.
