Emergency Information

If it is safe to move the injured or sick person, it is usually best to find the fastest way to the hospital on your own, by private car or by taxi. For this reason, carry a card with the name and address of your hospital of choice in both English and Chinese.

    Ambulance times are slow because Shanghai traffic does not yield to emergency vehicles. An ambulance will merely take you to the nearest hospital, not to the hospital of your choice. To call an ambulance, dial 120. Don’t count on the operator speaking English. It is advisable to learn a few key phrases, particularly your own address and the name of your hospital. Another option is to call United Family Hospital which has 24-hour ER and acute inpatient care, at 2216 3999.
