Basic tips for a medical tourism companion

  • As a companion you should know all information relevant to the medical procedure and precautions to be taken post-treatment. You also need to be familiar with the medications you have to administer after the procedure, as per the physician’s advice. Other post-op duties might include pushing the patient in a wheelchair as they might not be allowed to walk or to make sure that they are complying with the doctor’s recommendations.
  • Always remember to take note of any important contacts, including their telephone numbers and email addresses. These important contacts should be the name and number of doctors/surgeons and medical consultants. It will also be beneficial to include data related to the addresses of hospitals and clinics, and numbers to reach emergency ambulance services in the treating country.
  • Apart from emergency contact details do take your important documents such as your passport and driving license with you while you travel, as the patient might not be in a condition to drive or may need assistance in the car.
