10 Useful Medical Terms in Cebuano

Accidents happen anywhere and it could happen when you are in the southern part of the Philippines where majority of the people speak Cebuano or Binisaya.  If you ever find yourself in an emergency situation, you can use the following terminologies to help you find a hospital.  First, you can ask where the huspital (hospital) is and when you arrive at the huspital, you can look for the mananambal (doctor), although, doktor is widely used also.

After you have consulted the mananambal, and he gives you tambal (medicines) you will go to the nearest botika (pharmacy).  But before doing so, you have to present the risita (prescription) to the pharmacist.

In case, you meet an aksidinti (accident) and you are samaran (wounded), you have to go to the emergency room and get your samad (wound) cleaned and covered by a bindahi (bandage.)
