Visitors should fill out a specified visitor form and put on a visitor’s tag.

* Patients are requested to explain the visitors rules to their family members and acquaintances.

Pursuant to the Act on the Protection of Personal Information, no inquiries concerning patient information are acceptable by phone.


Request for restrictions on visits

To prevent infectious diseases from being brought into the hospital, visits to patients are limited to their family members (elementary school children or younger children are not acceptable).

Families of patients are not acceptable as well when they have any of the following conditions.
- Have a fever, sneezing, coughing, phlegm, nasal discharge, joint pain, diarrhea, nausea or other symptoms
- Have a cohabitating family member who is under treatment for influenza or infectious gastroenteritis
Visiting family members are requested to put on a mask, and limit their visits to within five minutes.
