night and holiday emergency clinic of Tokushima City
emergency medical system for children
Night and holiday emergency clinic of Tokushima City（Emergency clinic）was open １９９６ in Tokushima by entrusted Tokushima City Medical Association. Both pediatrics and internal medicine are under treatment as a first emergency clinic. Emergency clinic is open at every night through a year and at daytime on holiday. As Emergency clinic moved to Fureai Kenko-kan in ２０００, patients were convenient to visit and increased gradually in number. In２００５as a designated administrator, Tokushima Medical Association managed Emergency clinic independently. Especially swine influenza was extremely popular as pandemic in ２００９, and the number of patients was above １８０,００ as a new record. The patients were divided about７０％ of pediatrics and about３０％ of internal medicine, and from in and outside of Tokushima City. The main problem is the difficulty of acquisition because of the lack of pediatricians.
As for the protection of the emergency system for children in Tokushima Prefecture, residents need enlightenment of decreasing unnecessary and nonurgent visits. So residents are encouraged to keep this emergency system by themselves. We hope emergency medical system for children in Tokushima will be established as soon as possible.
