Inpatient Care

Admission Center (PFM; Patient Flow Management)

At Ashikaga Red Cross’ Admission Center, staff from several disciplines are standing by to assist patients with every aspect of their inpatient experience. From initial admission, to discharge and beyond, our staff works with patients, their families and other local medical institutions to make sure each patient gets appropriate care even after their time at the hospital is completed.

Patient Security

The safety of our patients is this hospital’s highest priority and we carefully monitor the security of all hospital wards. The wristbands worn by hospitalized patients act as a key for entering and exiting their respective wards. Please keep in mind that the bands only permit entrance to the patient’s authorized ward area.
 
One “Family Security Card” will be issued to the patient’s family. Family members should use this card when visiting the hospital. 
A message for patients being admitted
Ashikaga Red Cross Hospital is an “acute care” hospital that strives to provide the highest level of medical care possible through state-of-the-art testing, treatment and surgical expertise during the critical phases of a patient’s care. In order that the highest number of patients can receive the treatment that only this hospital can provide, once doctors have determined that the acute phase of a patient’s care has ended and their condition is stable, they are generally discharged. Of course, our staff works with other local medical institutions to arrange consultations and/or hospitalization for patients post-discharge as part of their overall care plan. We appreciate your understanding and cooperation regarding this policy.

Previously prescribed medication

In order to insure effective treatment and avoid potentially dangerous drug interactions, it is very important that patients being admitted who are already using medication prescribed elsewhere inform their doctor. A pharmacist will review what you are taking in light of any new treatments or procedures you may need.
