INDOOR PATIENT DEPARTMENT
An Inpatient is “admitted” to the hospital and stays overnight or for an indeterminate time, usually several days or weeks. Treatment provided in this fashion is called inpatient care. The admission to the hospital involves the production of an admission note. The leaving of the hospital is officially termed discharge and involves a corresponding discharge note.
There are 75 beds in hospital. These beds have special features both for the comfort and well-being of the patient and for the convenience of health care workers. Common features include adjustable height for the entire bed, the head, the feet, adjustable side rails.
