On September 10, 2020, our hospital acquired the certification of "JMIP", a certification system related to accepting foreign patients.
JMIP is a "medical institution certification system for accepting foreign patients", and this certification system was established by the Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare as part of a national project to promote the smooth acceptance of foreign patients in order for foreigners to be able to use Japanese medical services safely and securely.
Japanese, English, and Chinese have been added to the in-hospital display of each clinical department, department, and ward, and we have translated various documents such as explanatory documents, consent forms, and menus into English and Chinese.
In addition, we created a request procedure for interpreting service, etc., and established a process for collaboration between departments in order to provide a smooth response throughout the hospital.
Even after the certification, we will continue to work on the hospital as a whole so that each staff member can deepen their understanding of languages and culture,and in order for all patients to be able to receive high-quality medical care and receive medical treatment with peace of mind.
