Common Medical Emergencies in Bali

Here are some of the common medical emergencies that travelers might encounter in Bali:

Trauma and Accidents

This can include motorbike accidents, falls, and other injuries. The roads in Bali can be chaotic, and motorbike accidents are unfortunately common.

Water-related Incidents

Drowning, near-drowning, and injuries related to water activities such as surfing and swimming can occur, especially during the rainy season when currents can be strong.

Dehydration and Heat-related Illness

Bali's climate is tropical, and visitors may not be accustomed to the heat and humidity. Dehydration, heat exhaustion, and heatstroke can be significant concerns.

Gastrointestinal Issues

Travelers' diarrhea (Bali Belly) is a common issue for tourists in many parts of the world, including Bali. This can be caused by consuming contaminated food or water.

Mosquito-borne Diseases

Dengue fever is prevalent in Bali, especially during the rainy season. Travelers should take precautions to prevent mosquito bites.

Pre-existing Medical Conditions

These conditions can range from chronic illnesses such as diabetes, asthma, or heart disease to past surgeries or injuries.

Healthcare in Bali Hospitals

Bali's main public hospital is RSUP Sanglah Hospital in Denpasar.

Although it does not meet Western standards, it is the largest hospital on the island, with specialists and an international wing. Private hospitals and clinics with comfortable rooms, international standards and specially trained English-speaking medical staff are also available.

Siloam Hospital is one of Denpasar's private clinics and hospitals. It has a 24-hour emergency department and a wide range of specialties.

The cost of medical treatment in Bali varies greatly depending on the type of treatment received and the medical center visited.

Medical Air recommends travellers take out their own travel insurance to cover the cost of treatment in Bali should an emergency arise. We work closely with travel insurance companies to make the process easy for everyone involved. If you don't have travel insurance, Medical Air provides privately funded medical rescue flights from Bali to Australia.
