Family Healthcare in Shanghai
Health

Healthcare in ShanghaiShanghai has one of the better healthcare facilities in China compared to second and third tier cities, however, there aren't as many western medical establishments as local Chinese hospitals but keep in mind that new and improved services are rising rapidly. A great benefit for most expats is their major international insurances are accepted by many health care providers and in the case that they do not have one it is also available for purchase through a number of reputable brokers. Under any circumstance, foreigners can still go to a local facility for any medical concerns which usually is inexpensive and paid out of pocket. Another thing that expats should keep in mind is to bring any western medications that they need because most of the time those medications aren’t available locally. Also in the event of a medical emergency it is best to utilize the fastest transport available due to the fact that ambulance times are slow because Shanghai traffic doesn’t yield to these vehicles.

There are a few do's and don'ts to remember when you are dining with some Chinese friends. The most important thing to remember is to allow others to pour your drinks, and at the same time, keep your eye on their drinks to make sure they stay topped up. If you help yourself, it is a sign that the hosts or friends are not taking good care of you.
