Important information for patients
Does your state of health render a stay in hospital necessary? Then please, first of all, contact the office of the relevant clinic or specialist unit and arrange an appointment. On the day of your scheduled admission, please go first to the gate at the main entrance, where we will take down your patient details, including your name, address, telephone number and nationality, insurance status and, where applicable, payment exemption. To find out exactly which documents you need to bring with you, please see the checklist we have put together for you: checklist.
Important information for visitors
Visits from family and friends are particularly important during a stay in hospital. They relieve the monotony of hospital routine and so promote the well-being of all patients. But please do bear in mind that you will usually share your room with other patients, so please be considerate. Consideration includes, for example, that your visitors do not all come at the same time, but spread their visits over the day.
In an emergency
Our accident and emergency unit is open for you 24 hours a day, seven days a week. We work both with the emergency services and local general practitioners to ensure that our patients receive the best possible care as soon as possible.
We often have several patients with acute symptoms coming into our A&E unit at the same time, and we take care of them in the order of severity of their condition, not on a first-come, first-served basis. Depending on the extent of diagnostic measures to be taken and the number of patients, you may have to wait a little longer in the central A&E unit, as we trust you will appreciate. Please bear with us.
