Let’s use the ambulance properly

2022/03/22 Tuesday Announcements, Education


In Mie prefecture, 81,021 people were taken to the hospital by ambulance in 2020.  Of these, 51.6%, 41,820, were mildly ill patients with low urgency.  Make good use of ambulances so that those who really need them can get emergency medical care.

< See some of the reasons the ambulance were called.  Did everyone really need an ambulance?>

  • Itching caused by mosquito bite
  • Skin pain from sunburn after going to the beach
  • Cut on the finger by paper, but the bleeding already stopped
  • There’s no more prescribed medicine left from the hospital
  • Patients expected to be hospitalized wanted to go to the hospital by ambulance
  • Patients who did not want to wait in line at the hospital and asked for an ambulance

If you experience any condition or symptom with extreme urgency, do not hesitate to call 119 (in principle, the service will be in Japanese only).

From the link below, you can see how to call an ambulance, symptoms that require an ambulance (adults and children), about heat stroke, and pointers when calling an ambulance.

Look at these link below and use the information as needed.
