What Is The Maximum Number Of Days The Doctor Gives A Sick Permit To An Employee?
Hello! Usually a doctor at the clinic gives a sick permit for outpatients how many days huh? Initially I was only given permission for 2 days, because on the 3rd day I was still weak so I asked for an extension but the doctor did not want to because he said that for 3 days it has been calculated hospitalization, is it really like that? Is the policy really like that already? Thank you.
A sick permit is given if according to the examination the patient does need total rest, cannot work during illness, or also for some infectious diseases such as a sick permit for school children who have chickenpox.
Related to the length of days the permit granted will be adjusted to the patient's condition, usually 1 or 2 days. The issuance of a sick permit will also be adjusted to the regulations or standard operating procedures at the health facility visited. If according to the examination does not need to rest at home and do not interfere with work, generally the doctor also will not give a sick permit. You can discuss again with the doctor who treats you about this.
Hope it helps you,
