Puerto Rico is a safe country and we certify and recommend all of the providers on our site. We have a few suggestions when receiving healthcare in Puerto Rico – or anywhere for that matter:

Ask Questions and Speak Up

  • Actively participate in decisions about your treatment.
  • Ask questions about your care and treatment.
  • Ask questions about your discharge instructions.
  • Tell your provider if you do not understand what they are saying to you.
  • Ask for an interpreter if you do not understand English-Spanish.

Keep Your Healthcare Team Informed

  • Share your medical history with your health care team.
  • Share details of your medical problems and prior surgeries.
  • Share details of any allergies.

Know Your Medications

While you are in the hospital, ask about all medications you are given and why they have been prescribed for you. Remember to take home your written prescription and medication instructions.
