Kanto Chuo Hospital / 関東中央病院

I wasn't going to write about my hospital stay for my broken wrist but I imagine most of my American friends (and some of my Japanese friends) may not have the opportunity to see the inside of a Japanese hospital.

3月に左手首の骨折で入院約一週間入院してた。最初は入院中のネタを書くつもりはなかったが、考えてみるとアメリカの友達は多分日本の病院の中見たことないこも知りませんで、書く事にした。



My room for almost a week was on the fourth floor.

一週間近くの部屋は4階にありました。



My space.  I was in a room for two but the day I was scheduled to check in, the other person was checking out.  So I had the entire room to myself for my entire stay.

大部屋でしたが、糖尿の教育入院と違って、6人ではなく、二人部屋でした。僕が入院した日、他の人がちょうどう退院してた。ずーと自分の皇室になった感じです。



My portable living room.  Television, fridge,, closet, safe box, drawer - all in one.

病院生活に吹かせないもの ‐ テレビ、冷蔵庫、引き出し、押し入り全部付いてる。



My operation is scheduled for a Monday, why do I need to go into the hospital on a Friday?

オペが入院後の三日目。こんなに早く入院して意味あるの?







More closet space / 収納スペース結構あるよ






Even the chair has storage space / 椅子も収納スペースあり





View from the lounge / ラウンジからの眺め





In case you get tired of hospital food - 24hr convenience store.

病院食が飽きたら、24時間営業のコンビニもあるよ。




The only place you can smoke (however, I am a non-smoker).

関東中央の唯一の喫煙所。



At the entrance of the hospital / 病院の入り口にあります





Nice apartment complex and close to the hospital!!

良いマンションだね、病院が近くて便利!



My lonely hanami / 一人花見






I will post pictures of the food I ate next!

次は病院で何を食べたのネタ書きますよ!

I'm so glad you're writing about your hospital stay! I've never been in a hospital in Japan (and touch wood, won't ever, or not until I'm really ancient and decrepit), so I'm very curious about it.

The photos of the room made me grin. Neat, efficient and space is used optimally.

So ... that convenience store. You walked there in typical hospital garb that leaves your butt open? :D

Fortunately, you don't have to be in the hospital gowns you see in the movies.

You can change into your street clothes if you like. Or just stay in pajamas. Come to think of it, I didn't have to wear one of those hospital gowns for my operation either.
