According to Dr. Francois Pruvot, Head of the A&E Department at Hanoi French Hospital, quick decisions about severe cases are critical. As a result, doctors and paramedics in the A&E Department require specialised training to respond quickly and effectively to any medical emergency, from minor trauma to life-threatening conditions.

Dr. Pruvot emphasises that at Hanoi French Hospital, accident and emergency services are one of the trusted services of the hospital with many advantages, including:

International trained doctors and medical staff at HFH’s A&E Department

According to the World Health Organization, in medical emergencies the most critical factor is to provide first aid to the injured and sick as soon as possible. Most deaths occur in the first few hours after an accident due to respiratory system issues, blocked airways, or blood loss, almost all of which can be managed with prompt emergency care. If treated promptly, patients will see significantly reduced mortality rates and fewer complications and injuries.

In the event of an emergency, the emergency and surgical team at HFH is available 24/7, providing prompt, efficient, and high-quality emergency care. This is consistent with our commitment to providing first-class healthcare. Our professional skills, as well as a commitment to serving the patient's best interests, create a difference in terms of the quality of emergency services at Hanoi French Hospital.
