    Default Again, Gringo Behavior/ Health Care

    Maybe 10 days ago, I started a Thread about this topic.
    I got Pooh-Poohed for a drunken rant. No offense taken.
    Since then, just on this site, Two gringos dead.
    This Topic should get a Sticky.

    Maybe, Locations of any type of care for Emergencies, Directions, etc.

    Can't believe how many times I put myself at risk. Not realizing there was no care center close.
    Yup! I'm on my 3rd Tumbler of Carlo Rossi Rhine. They sell it in the DR. But I only drink Brugal or My Girlfriends In Gray when there.

    Sir Deyvi. What is your obsession with medical emergencies. You received some sound advice on your last post / thread. ...Relax,... you can make it state side for most emergences, unless its a fractured penis. Than you will need to seek the prompt services of a urologic surgeon. You will have to bust a move over to Santiago.

    Sorry to hijack your thread but I don't think it will last long anyway. For those who speak Spanish this is a good piece on medical tourism in the DR:

    Excellent idea! You could trick that thing out and get pre-paid contracts from the drunken gringos that expect to get into
    trouble. And, you could charge more if your drunken gringos put themselves at even higher risk! Box of wine included.

    Well, I think you just came up with the name! "Drunken Gringo EMS" My call sign will be Borracho 1! I'll have a picture of some shirtless fat guy passed out next to a palm tree on the side. I could even offer roadside Penicillin shots for that 'gift you don't want to bring back to the wife'.

    I think I'd have to... As far as I can tell Paramedic means nothing down here! This is something I am going to explore once I have been here long enough and know Spanish. Not so much an ambulance service, but more of a quick response/intercept service. The last service I worked for in the US was set up like this. We provided ALS and Critical Care Paramedics to all the rural ambulance services and hospitals. A paramedic with equipment would respond in an SUV, and the local ambulance would transport the pt.
