THEIR SPECIALIST DEPARTMENTS/CLINICS Emergency Reception In their emergency room you will be treated as an emergency without an appointment around the clock. You come to them with the rescue service, independently with acute health problems or are referred by your family doctor. They provide competent and interdisciplinary diagnostics and initial treatment so that you can then be referred to the relevant specialist department in their hospital or you can be discharged home on an outpatient basis. An interprofessional team is available for this purpose. The influx of patients and the nature of the diseases cannot be planned. Their emergency room is often heavily frequented on weekends and public holidays, so that there can always be a bottleneck in care in special situations. Patient care cannot be fixed at the time of arrival in the emergency room, but is subject to the criteria of urgency. This is assessed by their trained admissions staff. This is done using a proven method - the Manchester Triage. They always have an open ear for your problems and questions. Talk to them at any time, but please also understand that the acute care of their patients must be the focus.

In order to accelerate the healing phase after an operation, minimally invasive methods (so-called "keyhole surgery") are preferably used.
