All outpatients and inpatients are requested to observe applicable hospital rules and regulations.
Those who are found, during consultations or hospitalization, to use violence, deliberately damage the hospital’s property or other objects, disobey hospital personnel’s instructions, make false statements, or resort to verbal abuse will be ordered to leave. In cases where urgent response is necessary, the hospital will call the police at once.
- Medical examination, medication, and other medical services covered by the Japanese health insurance system
When you receive medical services that are covered by the Japanese health insurance system, the doctor who examines you decides which tests to conduct and medicines to prescribe, based on what he or she considers necessary for you.
In other words, even though a patient or patient’s family member requests a specific test, the request may not be met if the doctor considers it unnecessary for the patient.
