In the event of hospitalisation, inform your insurance company immediately. During your first visit to the hospital, the employee at the information desk will issue you a hospital identity card with your personal data, insurance information and the name of your general practitioner. You will need to show this card each time you go to hospital.
First Aid Service
Dutch hospitals generally have emergency rooms for first aid. However, hospital staff is allowed to refuse help in a non-life threatening emergency if you are not referred by your local general practitioner. Therefore, always call your GP first. He or she will help you decide what you should do and arrange an ambulance if necessary. Just going to the First Aid post (EHBO) at the hospital may result in long waiting times or in not being helped at all.
