In most hospitals, two languages, i.e. Chinese and English would be adopted in particular hospitals located in the major cities such as Beijing, GuangZhou and Shanghai. In case no English signals are used in some hospitals, with the wide spreading of English education it is rather convenient to use simple English to communicate in hospitals in China. Or in case of emergency, simply call emergency no. 110 (just dial this number direct throughout the mainland China) and get in contact the an English agent to assist further. In one word, it is not a big issue in term of communicating in English in using hospital service in China.
