Admissions

Signing in

All those using our outpatient specialised care must first sign in at the desk located on the ground floor of the clinic. Here we record all your details into our computer system. For this we ask you to prepare your identity card, residence card, referral and your social security card. After we have taken down all your details, we ask our patients to go to the second floor using the elevators or the stairs and report at the desk. Here we can inform you where the sought doctor will see you. This is also where we notify the given surgery about your arrival via computer. From here on we ask that you wait patiently until you are called. If your referral only has our Institutions name on it and not the specific doctors name, then our specialist neurologist Dr. Ildikó Nagy will carry out the required tests on your first visit. If you have any questions regarding our outpatient care feel free to contact our senior assistant Szántó Emília.

Admission policies

In emergency cases we must admit applicant (brought in) patients who are in critical condition, who could become critical without our admission and those who's condition could actually worsen if they did not get the emergency care they needed, whether they have a referral or not. It is the doctors job to determine urgency, therefore in these cases we ask you to report to the Admissions Clinic (room 208) located on the ground floor, where our round-the-clock professional staff will notify the on call doctor. Booked patient admittance takes place in the Admission Office. Documents needed for admission administration:

- ID card
-proof of address
-health insurance card
-referral
-previous final reports, findings
 
All patients admitted to the National Institute of Neuroscience will be given an identification. This identification consists of a plastic band with the patients initials, the wards name and the patients ID number written on it with waterproof methods. It will be attached to your wrist on admission by a member of staff using a non-open snap, they will record this in the charts with a signature. During their stay at the hospital, patients wristbands must never be removed. Once patients have left the hospital, they can cut the band off using scissors. Patients have the right to refuse to wear the ID band. However, in this case they have to sign a declaration stating that they refused to wear the band out of their own free will and acknowledge that the hospital shall not be liable for any consequences resulting from this. Disabled or partially incapable patient's guardians or parents are eligible for declaration. If any of the following occur, the attachment of the wristband is mandatory:

- the patient's consciousness is impaired when admitted,
- the patient's consciousness changes for the worse during medical care,
- the patient is admitted because of a planned surgery,
-acute surgery is needed,
- during required examinations, due to their health condition it is possible that their consciousness changes to the effect that they are unable to identify themselves.

We must identify all patients before any medical procedure (carried out by doctors or specialised staff), or if they are being transferred or transported to another department. It is the responsibility of the doctor performing the procedure and the nurse overseeing the transfer, as well as the transporting staff to identify the patient. The department nurse takes care of the replacement and rewriting of any ID bands that get damaged or become unreadable. The time and fact of the replacement will be recorded in the charts. Once the ID band has been attached, the patient can then proceed to the relevant department with the received charts and admission forms.
Both domestic and foreign uninsured patients are charged a fix price set by the Institute. The amount which is stipulated in our Payment Policy, needs to be paid on admission at the institutes payment desk. If any further payments during care are required, they need to be paid before the patients departure.

Discharging of Patients

All patients leaving the hospital receive a final report from their physician. The final report will contain descriptions of the hospital treatments, exams, follow up treatments and home care suggestions. The final report needs to be given to your GP within 24 hours, so that any potential medical treatment can continue smoothly at home, and the necessary medication can be prescribed. Any received hospital items must be handed over to the department nurse when leaving.
