Emergencies - Be Safe in Beijing


Be Safe in Beijing


The Good Samaritan law is in place to offer legal protection to people who help others who are ill or injured. China has enforced this law since October 2017, protecting people that are helpful to others in need. Before this date, the rules were not clear, and I had been advised not to help others in China in need of assistance during an emergency. Many injured people have sued good Samaritans successfully, that came to their aid.


I am a big helper. If I saw someone hurt, I would always help them. I know that, if the reverse were to happen, I would want assistance from others. There are several things we can do ourselves to protect our family and ourselves. 




TIPS & TRICKS


MEDICAL ID 

Many phones have a medical ID that can be reached without using the user’s password. This is extremely helpful when the injured person is unresponsive.


PASSPORTS

Carry your passport (or a copy of) with you at all times so you can be identified.


INFORMATION

In case of emergency it’s always good practice to carry a piece of paper with important phone numbers of family members, your hospital and embassy.


HOSPITAL ADDRESS

OASIS International Hospital provides pocket sized cards with the hospital’s address in English and Chinese,to show your driver.


FIRST AID

Be in the know of first aid, and if you employ a carer for your children, make sure they are too. OASIS International Hospital offers regular Ayi and Parent First Aid Courses.

* Good Samaritan laws offer legal protection to people who give reasonable assistance to those who are, or who they believe to be, injured, ill, in peril, or otherwise incapacitated.[1] The protection is intended to reduce bystanders' hesitation to assist, for fear of being sued or prosecuted for unintentional injury or wrongful death. An example of such a law in common-law areas of Canada: a good Samaritan doctrine is a legal principle that prevents a rescuer who has voluntarily helped a victim in distress from being successfully sued for wrongdoing. Its purpose is to keep people from being reluctant to help a stranger in need for fear of legal repercussions should they make some mistake in treatment.[2] By contrast, a duty to rescue law requires people to offer assistance, and holds those who fail to do so liable.
