Survey: 14,000 patients rejected in Japan

USA Today, March 11, 2008
More than 14,000 emergency patients were rejected by hospitals in Japan at least three times before getting treatment in 2007, according to a government survey. At least 3.5 percent of cases in serious condition were rejected three times or more by hospitals, according to a report. The results came amid reports of Japanese patients being rejected because doctors are not available or hospitals lack adequate facilities.
