Special Duties

Squad Four is the medical/supply squad. They are responsible for both treating the injured and doing most of the manual labor, such as cleaning the Seireitei. The 4th Division is further divided into teams that have specific assigned jobs. Other division members use their spiritual power only for fighting. Members of Squad Four possess spiritual powers that is used to tend to wounds and provide relief. They use these special powers and the benefits of their daily training to act with precision and speed to aid injured comrades. Squad Four administers emergency first aid to injured squad members and transports them to the General Emergency Relief Station.

In addition, the nurses who work in the Sōgō Kyūgo Tsumesho (meaning for the coordinated relief station) have special Shihakushō (meaning for "Garment of Dead Souls") that are pink in color with hats that are reminicent of nurse uniforms of the World of the Living.

They are looked down upon by Squad Eleven who usually bully them around because they believe that Squad Four are just a weak medical team, as opposed to Squad Four, which is combat-focused, although most members of the Squad Eleven are afraid of the Captain Retsu Unohana.
