Better be prepared, because the accidents happen! Recently the Metaphora team learnt how to deal with small injuries as well as life threatening ones.
A few hours long course provided by the experienced lifeguard helped with increasing the awareness of different daily situations which can happen to everyone.
We could exchange tips for medical treatment and practice the most important procedures of rescuing others.
However, the serious injuries require professional help. In Madeira, part of the European Union, you can call 112 when someone’s life is in danger.
The main treatment place is the Dr. Nélio Mendoça hospital located in Funchal, the capital of Madeira, where also you get the official free COVID-19 tests. You can get them before going to Porto Santo or if you are regitered as a resident of Madeira you need to do an extra one.
Despite that, if you would like to get an extra test you should better go to the private clinic. My personal recommendation is Clinical Da Sé where I took a quick test for 20€. The full list of available places of Madeira is available here: LIST of LABORATORIES.
