Hospital Rooms

We will make every effort to honor your hospital room request. However, rooms are assigned based upon availability and needs of patients. Please understand that you may be requested by the hospital to change rooms during your hospitalization due to other patients’ medical and social needs.

Patients who have received medical treatment in foreign countries may be required to undergo bacteriological testing prior to admission

The Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare of Japan has required medical institutions to take strict measures against hospital-acquired infection to prevent the spread of infection within the country for some time (“Measures against Hospital-Acquired Infection at Medical Institutions, etc.,” dated June 2011).

Now, in addition to the measures already in place, due to several reported cases of infection with multiple-drug-resistant bacteria of foreign origin, and also pursuant to the ministry’s additional notification*, patients from any regions or countries who have history of inpatient treatment during the past year at overseas medical institutions are required to undergo screening for a multiple-drug-resistant bacterial infection prior to admission to the university of Tokyo Hospital.

We sincerely appreciate your understanding and cooperation.
