Deciding whether a patient's case requires hospitalization or not is based on the admission criteria, Haroun said.The admission regulation aims to control whether a patient is in need of hospital treatment or simply wants to be admitted in order to undergo free tests. However, Haroun stressed that that the admission test would not take much time, and would not endanger the patient seeking treatment.The TPA representative sees whether the patient's case fits the admission criteria. Haroun added that the hospital doctor also contributed to the admission decision.If circumstances force a hospital to exceed a month's ceiling, Haroun said hospitals needed to compensate for this the following month by finishing under budget.
