The doctor has to certify if it can be treated as hospitalisation. Without that, it will be just ordinary sick leave. See the proviso below.

"And provided further that if an employee is certified by such registered medical practitioner or medical officer to be ill enough to need to be hospitalised but is not hospitalised for any reason whatsoever, the employee shall be deemed to be hospitalised for the purposes of this section."
