Medical institution implementing measures to prevent infection such as new coronavirus infectious disease Everyone's peace of mind mark

  • Everyone's safety mark

    With the spread of the new coronavirus, medical institutions are working more than ever to prevent infection, but those who have been to the hospital or who have become ill due to a major change in their lifestyle are at increased risk of infection. There is a current situation where people are afraid to refrain from visiting a medical institution or postpone it.
    In addition, there are many people who are worried about their children's infection and refrain from vaccinations or cancel health checkups.
    If this situation continues, it will hinder the early detection and prevention of diseases, which are the strengths of Japanese medical care, and could have a serious impact on the health of the public.
    In light of this situation, the Japan Medical Association has issued a “Medical Service for Preventing Infection Prevention against Novel Coronavirus Infections, etc.” to medical institutions that are thoroughly implementing infection prevention measures so that patients can visit medical institutions with peace of mind. We have decided to issue the Institution Everyone's Peace of Mind Mark.
    This mark will be issued when the medical institution answers that it has implemented all the items of the infection prevention self-checklist.
    A list of medical institutions that have issued this mark can be found below.
