Patong Hospital review by jackie

Many hospitals in Phuket Island Thailand. Several International hospitals I recommend. Living her 11 years I was was surprised to hear of the hospital. A Thai friend ask me to go with her for a doctor check-up. The hospital is not new. Patong is the main tourist area of Phuket. My friend had ok care as far as i could see.

But i woukd recommend avoiding this hospital if a tourist. I base that on two observations. One a Chinese family came in with very sick boy about 7? The waiting area emergency area was not busy. Many nurses sitting. The family came in with the father carrying the sick child. The child was lathargic. It took Thai people there and me to help the family to know where to go. The hospital staff showed no concern. Yes the family are Chinese but this is the main tourist area. They received no help from the staff navigating the language barrier!!

I showed the mother where she could lay her son down and was running high fever. What the outcome I dont know as my friend and I left.

The second reason suggest trying another hospital if possible is on Google map Review . Patong hospital gets a 2 overall rating.

There are several International hospitals equipped for tourist. My experience is with Phuket International and Mission. Both very good hospitals. Word of warning.

Tourist there is no free medical care for you. Insurance or cash.

Diarrhea when Traveling

Travelers’ Diarrhea

Travelers’ diarrhea is the most common travel-related illness. It can occur anywhere, but the highest-risk destinations are in most of Asia (except for Japan) as well as the Middle East, Africa, Mexico, and Central and South America.

Prevention

In otherwise healthy adults, diarrhea is rarely serious or life-threatening, but it can certainly make for an unpleasant trip. Take steps to avoid diarrhea when you travel.

Eat & Drink Safely

Choose foods and beverages carefully to lower your risk of diarrhea (see Food & Water Safety). Eat only food that is cooked and served hot. (Avoid, for example, food that has been sitting on a buffet.) Eat raw fruits and vegetables only if you have washed them in clean water or peeled them. Drink only beverages from factory-sealed containers, and avoid ice (because it may have been made from unclean water).

Keep Your Hands Clean

Wash your hands often with soap and water, especially after using the bathroom and before eating. If soap and water aren’t available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer. In general, it’s a good idea to keep your hands away from your mouth.

Treatment

Fluid Replacement

If you get diarrhea, drink lots of fluids to stay hydrated. This is especially important for young children or adults with chronic illnesses. In serious cases of travelers’ diarrhea, oral rehydration solution—available online or in pharmacies in developing countries—can be used for fluid replacement.

Antibiotics

Many travelers carry antibiotics with them so they can treat diarrhea early if they start to get sick. The choice of antibiotics varies depending on the destination. Ask your doctor if you should take an antibiotic on your trip.

Over-the-Counter Drugs

Several drugs, such as Lomotil or Imodium, can be bought over-the-counter to treat the symptoms of diarrhea. These drugs decrease the frequency and urgency of needing to use the bathroom, and they may make it easier for you to ride on a bus or airplane while waiting for an antibiotic to take effect.

I woke up early as usual this morning. Walked outside thinking about ending it all.  Went into my kitchen and made my milk tea . Normal routine for me.  Walked back to my porch with my milk tea. Sat my cup on the bench.  Stared out but not seeing. Wanting to end it all.  I turned around walking back to my kitchen in a trance. I was going to end the pain.  I stopped after 10 feet.  I have never come so close. 

Not unusual for me to think about sucide.  When I talk with friends that have PTSD or i prefer to call my symptom CTE many of us think about sucide. Sadly many have ended their pain. There is no cure. You learn to live with it.  

I write about it as it helps me and hope to help others.  Talking about helps relieve the isolation we can feel.  

I had a women write me last month. Her sister has become a recluse. Will not talk to anyone even family. The sister name is Kathy.  She knew I worked with Kathy. Ask me for help.  I told her to read my articles and contact a doctor. Being alone is a dangerous place to be.  I have been alone the last 7 days.   

I am ok for now. Everyday is a struggle.  But I have survived for a long time.   But if you know someone that has   PTSD OR CTE  talk to them.   It does help. 

Being alone isolation is not good.  

I am not a doctor or trained medical person.  This is just my own experience.
