When visiting the emergency room, a doctor or nurse on duty will perform a preliminary medical examination to determine whether you truly need emergency treatment.

If, on the basis of the preliminary medical examination, your situation is not deemed an emergency, you may make an outpatient appointment and will also receive information about other medical centers that are suitable for your situation. Physicians treat emergency patients in a non-discriminatory manner based on the emergency medical needs of each patients. Medical examinations, tests, and emergency treatment can be performed simultaneously and, when necessary, physicians in different departments work cooperatively.
