Medical Matters

1. Treatment at a Hospital

State if this is your first visit to the hospital, explain what your problem is and show your health insurance card at the hospital reception desk.

If it is not your first visit, show your hospital card.

Basically, treatment is in order of reception, however in dental clinics it is possible to make prior appointments.

Please follow the instructions of the nurse in the waiting area. If you are given a thermometer, take your temperature.

After your treatment, pay for it at the cashier counter, receive your medicine and then you are free to leave. You may have to buy your medicine at a nearby pharmacy.


2. If you need to visit a hospital at night or on a holiday

Usually hospitals are closed at night and holidays. In this event, you may use hospitals designated for treatment on holidays.
