Miscellaneous info

Electricity
Jiangsu uses the European electricity standard: 220V, 50Hz.

Emergency service
In Jiangsu, ambulances do not carry sophisticated medical equipment, and ambulance personnel generally have little or no medical training. Therefore, injured or seriously ill patients should take taxis or other immediately available vehicles to the nearest major hospital rather than waiting for ambulances to arrive.

Over years, some international medical and health care providers have opened their branches in China under WTO commitments, though these services are usually more expensive than hospitals and clinics operated by local governments, including Australia-based company, GlobalDoctor Ltd, Singapore-based international emergency provider AEA (Asia Emergency Assistance).

See the category “Health” for details.

Health and Hospitals
Duo to differences in language and social habits, it is recommended that international travelers go to those hospitals especially for foreigners, which may probably provide more satisfactory services than those available for locals.

These hospitals are available in most major Chinese cities that have so-called VIP wards (Gao Gan Bing Fang). These VIP wards are originally facilities where high standard medical care is provided to high ranking government officers. This practical medical service offers time benefits and advantages in access to modern medical technology and skilled medical staff.

In order to match international medical care standards for international travelers and expatriates, Chinese local governments have opened these facilities to foreigners plus English-speaking doctors and nurses. Most of these VIP wards may even accept credit cards for payment as well..

See the category “Health” for details.
