The week surrounding New Year’s Day is known as the “seven dangerous days” and accounts for thousands of road injuries and deaths.

Siharaj said BHP is prepared to handle emergency situations at all times, especially during New Year’s. Doctors and support staff are often called in for training and guided on how to handle such situations and prepare equipment.

Apart from that, the hospital has joined Banglamung Police, Pattaya Tourist Police and the Sawang Bori­boon Foundation Pattaya to coordinate in any critical accident situation.
