Research Report on the Care Situation for the Persons with High - Cervical injuries a tHome

For the persons with high-cervical injuries in Japan, there are few options available other than life-long insti- tutionalisation or home-based care by heir families. However, yet the administration has no grasp of the real- ity of home-based care. Also, there are no official statistics regarding spinal cord injury.

To address this situation, patients and their attendants visited 50 homes from Hokkaido to Kyushu in pairs for a fact-finding research project. This detailed study on nursing care revealed the time required for home care per day; 27 hours (which means at least three attendants needed) for a breathing machine user, 24 hours for injuries of C4 and above, and 14 hours for injuries classified as C5 and below.

Research Report on the Admission Status of Spinal Cord Injured Persons at Hospitals Across Japan

Medical centers for spinal cord injury are a norm in Europe and America, yet only one such facility is found in Japan. Therefore, it is a reality that injured people are urged to leave hospitals in the acute stage, without receiving appropriate medical care and rehabilitation. In order to shed a light on this medical situation, questionnaires were sent to 250 medical institutions across Japan by post. Based on the responses from 106 institutions, problems concerning the medical care of spinal cord injury were brought to light.

In short, there was an extreme imbalance among the therapy institutions, where two thirds of all patients had been admitted to only 11 institutions across the country at the time of the research. All the other institutions were“not accepting such pa- tients” or “responding to patients at the acute stage only”. The same problem was seen at rehabilitation facilities. To resolve this situation, it was pointed out that the medical insurance system should be stepped up to cover treatment of spinal cord injuries, and that it was necessary to establish “Spinal Cord Injury Centers” all over the country to provide medical care from treatment to rehabilitation.
