Steps That You Take In A Thai Hospital

Before the pandemic, these steps were taken. They may be different, but it is unlikely that they would radically alter their procedures.
Because of my 3 Thai hospital stays, I’m an expert.
You will need to register at the registration desk if you are able to get to the hospital on your own. You should have a Thai-speaking companion with you. It makes things go much more smoothly.
After registering, you will be assigned a doctor and will need to find their door in the hospital.
Thailand’s public hospitals usually have long waiting times, especially if it is a major city or town. Another difference is that a city or town hospital will give you a number.
You will have to wait for a long time to see the doctor. Usually, the doctor will just ask you questions about the symptoms you are experiencing. You are unlikely to be touched by a doctor. As an American, I thought that this was strange since American doctors always touch you as they examine you internally. The feeling was not comfortable for me, but it made sense that they would have to touch you to see what is going on.
When the doctor has finished questioning you, he or she will tell you whether you need to stay in the hospital.
The Thai nurse who takes you to your assigned room will provide you with a gurney if you need to stay in the hospital.
Upon entering a room with about 10 to 20 people, you will be given a gown that is hard to tie and embarrassing to wear.
You should have brought your mobile phone or laptop if you went to the hospital on your own. You can do a lot in your bed except if you want to observe what your fellow hospital patients are doing.
In the hospital, a hospital staff member will check your vital signs once an hour. Breakfast is usually served between 6 and 7 a.m. I don’t understand why they start so early. Lunch is around noon, and supper is around 6 pm.
These meals are of poor quality, and they may motivate you to want to leave the hospital. It won’t change and you won’t know the day unless you check your phone.
You will pay for your stay at the cashier first when you are ready to leave. You won’t get the same treatment at an American hospital, but it’s better than going to a foreign country. Once you have paid the cashier, you go to the hospital pharmacy to get your medicine. As an outpatient, you may still need to come to the hospital to get your dressing changed.
Being in a Thai hospital is not the worst thing you could do in your life, but it is certainly not the best. Before the pandemic, these steps were taken. They may be different, but it is unlikely that they would radically alter their procedures.
