With the concept of "personal medicine", value-oriented action for and with patients and employees is corporate strategy." MEDICAL FOCUS AT THE SENFTENBERG SITE Center for Psychosocial Health The Center for Psychosocial Health sees itself as a modern regional therapy center with a community-based social-psychiatric focus. For almost all mental illnesses, the treatment chain is maintained on an outpatient, semi-stationary and inpatient basis for integrative care. People affected by a mental disorder receive an individual offer of help tailored to their needs with flexible and well-coordinated transitions between the treatment areas. The ZfPG with a total of 72 beds is divided into seven units with the areas of psychiatric intensive care unit, general psychiatry including geriatric psychiatry, addiction and behavioral medicine, affective disorders and psychosomatic medicine. The psychosomatic department with 18 inpatient and 12 semi-inpatient places is currently under construction. The day clinics with 52 places (Senftenberg and Lauchhammer locations) have a general psychiatric-psychotherapeutic spectrum. In addition to basic psychiatric care, they also offer group and ergotherapy as well as a number of special consultation hours in two psychiatric institute outpatient clinics (PIA) at two locations (Senftenberg, Lauchhammer). A growing modern clinic with state-of-the-art methods, evidence-based medicine and excellent technical equipment (ECT, rTMS, psychiatric intensive care unit, ECG, EEG, electronic patient files, mobile digital rounds and much more). In all areas of care, they work in an integrative manner in multi-professional teams using behavioral therapy, systemic and psychodynamic methods, supplemented by disorder-specific concepts such as psychotrauma therapy, elements of DBT, ACT, etc. In addition to psychotherapy, psychopharmacotherapy and social therapy, many innovative methods are also used, such as light, aroma, biofeedback, brain stimulation and animal assisted therapy. They also offer special mother/father-child treatment places. All methods of modern psychiatric, psychoneuroradiological (MRT, PET in external cooperation), neuropsychological and somatic diagnostics are available. "It is important to us that our employees of all professional groups receive in-depth training and further education through an extensive internal training curriculum, external training, teamwork and case supervision. Here we work together with various cooperation partners. There is full authorization for further training in the field of psychiatry and psychotherapy. The chief physician and the senior consultant are trained clinical supervisors (DGPPN) in both depth psychology and behavioral therapy." CENTRAL EMERGENCY ROOM General information As interfaces between the outside world and the hospital, the emergency rooms are central service providers for patients, family doctors and specialists who refer emergency services, and the individual departments of the hospital. They function on an interdisciplinary basis and are operated at the Senftenberg and Lauchhammer locations in accordance with the care mandate of the clinic. Patients with emergency illnesses are treated around the clock, 365 days a year. In cooperation with the specialized departments, the patients are stabilized in the emergency room, diagnosed up to a reasonable threshold and the initial treatment regimen is determined. If you unexpectedly fall ill or need urgent medical help, the Klinikum Niederlausitz in Senftenberg and Lauchhammer offers competent outpatient and inpatient care. The individual clinics and specialist departments of our facility operate across disciplines and thus guarantee optimal care for the patients. In order to keep distances and, if necessary, waiting times as short as possible, you will find an overview of common health complaints and the corresponding treatment departments (emergency rooms) here. In an acute emergency, the quickest and most effective way to get help is to call the emergency services (telephone 112). TRAUMA SURGERY AND ORTHOPAEDICS, HAND AND PLASTIC SURGERY Certified as a regional trauma center and trauma network Brandenburg South in the TraumNetzwerk DGU® NEUROLOGY AND PAIN MANAGEMENT Under the umbrella of the Center for Neurology and Pain Treatment, the Klinikum Niederlausitz offers a wide range of diagnostic and therapeutic services at its clinic location in Senftenberg. It guarantees patients in the region a comprehensive range of care and treatment for all acute and chronic neurological diseases. At the same time, the Center for Neurology and Pain Treatment, with its special range of conventional medicine and complementary medicine, would like to be available to patients from other regions of Germany in addition to its regional care mandate. PRINCIPLES The following principles are particularly important to us in our work: • Our patients are entitled to optimal diagnostics and treatment of their disease based on the latest scientific findings. • We operate a "personal medicine" and try to align the diagnostics and therapy with the individual life situation of each patient and the peculiarities of his person and biography. • Our goal is holistic medicine. At the request of our patients, there is the possibility of integrating therapy methods from the field of naturopathy and anthroposophic medicine into the classic medical treatment concept. AREAS The Center for Neurology and Pain Treatment is divided into three areas: • the Department of Vascular Neurology with neurologically managed interdisciplinary stroke unit (Ward 20 A) • the general neurological department (ward 22) • interdisciplinary pain treatment. Due to the close cooperation with the health center Calau GmbH, we also offer outpatient treatment for patients in the neurological, psychiatric and pain therapy areas. INSTITUTE OF RADIOLOGY AND NEURORADIOLOGY General information about our institute The task of the institute is to provide the patients of the clinic with imaging procedures at a high level of performance. We can also examine you as an outpatient. We have modern equipment in friendly and bright rooms. The entire radiology is digitized, which means that all examinations are made, reported and archived digitally. The findings are also archived electronically using our modern radiology management system. CENTER FOR INTENSIVE CARE AND EMERGENCY MEDICINE The center for intensive care and emergency medicine at the Niederlausitz Clinic, which was founded in March 2019, includes the intensive care unit at the Senftenberg site and the clinic’s two emergency rooms at the Senftenberg and Lauchhammer sites. With the formation of the center, intensive care and emergency medicine were strengthened and further expanded. With the founding of the center for intensive care and emergency medicine, the Klinikum Niederlausitz is responding to the increased demand in these areas. "I would like to closely involve relatives in the intensive care unit and align the performance of the emergency rooms at the Klinikum Niederlausitz with the increased importance of emergency care.“ said Dr. Volkmar Hanisch, Chief Physician of the Center for Intensive Care and Emergency Medicine. INSTITUTE FOR CLINICAL CHEMISTRY, LABORATORY DIAGNOSTICS AND MICROBIOLOGY Our laboratories at the Senftenberg and Lauchhammer locations include all the important areas of a modern medical laboratory. The range of services is continuously coordinated with the requesting clinics and other medical facilities and is based on the care mandate of the clinic and the corporate goal. More than 60 percent of all diagnoses are made with the help of laboratory tests. In this way, we support medical decision-making processes in diagnostics and therapy. Both locations together perform approx. 1.8 million examinations a year and have state-of-the-art equipment. EDP ​​networking with the clinics, the wards and the resident doctors allows the treating doctor to quickly view his laboratory results. INSTITUTE FOR HOSPITAL HYGIENE The Institute for Hospital Hygiene in the Niederlausitz Clinic reports directly to the management and works according to the guidelines of the Robert Koch Institute (RKI) and the recommendations of the Commission for Hospital Hygiene and Infection Prevention (KRINKO). The areas to be advised and examined are very extensive. In addition to the classic bed wards in Senftenberg and Lauchhammer, this also includes central sterilization, the kitchen and cleaning. In addition, the boarding school, the learning bar on the LAUSITZ family campus in Klettwitz and the outpatient practices of the subsidiaries are also looked after by the hospital hygiene department. The core tasks include recording and clarifying the causes of possible hospital infections and initiating necessary countermeasures and the creation of hygiene plans. Furthermore, hygiene is also included in the planning of functional and structural measures. Essential components are staff training, including basic hygiene, hand hygiene and how to deal with multi-resistant pathogens, in order to sensitize them to their understanding of hygiene. INTERNAL MEDICINE CLINIC The Clinic for Internal Medicine / Cardiology is a highly specialized department with 40 beds on our general wards. More than 5,000 inpatients are treated in our clinic every year. Experienced specialists and highly modern equipment for diagnostics and therapy in the field of general internal medicine, especially in the field of cardiology, are available for this purpose. In addition to the option of inpatient treatment, the Clinic for Internal Medicine has various outpatient clinics and consultation hours. VASCULAR CENTER LOWER LUSATIA We, a team of nurses and vascular physicians (vascular surgeons and internists), look after the patients in a modern, interdisciplinary ward (angiology and vascular surgery). Patients treated with medication, interventional and surgical treatment are cared for here in equal measure. One, two and three-bed rooms are available to patients on the ward. During the entire stay, the nursing care takes place as part of the area care, ie the patients have a contact person in the early and late shifts. Thus, individual care is taken into account. In order to ensure a smooth transition from inpatient treatment to home care, competent social service staff are available to patients. Our concern As a vascular center, it is our concern to offer every patient with vascular diseases the best possible treatment. For this purpose, we hold case reviews several times a week, in which the further treatment procedure is determined on an interdisciplinary basis. We have many years of experience in operating on the anterior carotid artery (A. carotis) under local anesthesia. Aneurysms (protrusions) of the arteries in the abdominal cavity are treated with an endovascular (vascular prosthesis that is inserted into the vessel through a small skin incision) or open surgery, depending on their extent and shape. Read here how we have been working with the Lausitzer Seenland Klinikum Hoyerswerda since June 2022. The diabetic foot syndrome (ulcer formation, inflammation and tissue loss in the foot of patients with blood sugar disorders) is treated in our interdisciplinary ward if circulatory disorders occur at the same time. Vascular dilatations and bypass systems (vascular diversions on the legs) can be carried out up to the foot arteries. Our aim is to carry out the surgical treatment of varicose veins (varicose veins) on an outpatient basis. However, if there are illnesses or circumstances in which an outpatient operation is considered too dangerous for the patient, the treatment is carried out under inpatient conditions. ANESTHESIA, PAIN THERAPY, INTENSIVE CARE AND RESCUE MEDICINE Their goal is to accompany you through the anesthesia with as little fear as possible. Our clinic for anesthesia, pain therapy, intensive care and rescue medicine operates across disciplines at the two locations in Senftenberg and Lauchhammer. We look after 145 inpatient beds in the operative disciplines of visceral surgery, traumatology, orthopaedics, hand surgery, spinal surgery, vascular surgery, urology, gynecology and obstetrics. The Senftenberg location is certified as a regional trauma center and trauma network Brandenburg South in the TraumNetzwerk DGU® and has approval for the BG injury type procedure. In addition, we have the successful approval as a spinal specialist center of the DGW® represented by the clinic for neurotraumatology and spinal surgery. SPEECH THERAPY the diagnosis and therapy of language, speech, voice and swallowing disorders. The aim of treatment for disorders in language processing and programming is to produce and understand spoken and written language again. In the case of disorders of speech motor skills, movement planning and control as well as vocalization, the focus is on improving the quality and comprehensibility of speech. If the ability to swallow is impaired, speech therapy tries to prevent food from entering the airways, for example by changing posture, special swallowing techniques and adjusting the consistency of food. Paralysis of the face and tongue caused by damage to the cranial nerves is treated using various stimulation techniques and movement exercises. OCCUPATIONAL THERAPY supports and accompanies people of all ages who are restricted in their ability to act or who are threatened with restriction. The aim is to strengthen the implementation of activities in the areas of self-sufficiency, productivity and leisure time in the personal environment. At the Klinikum Niederlausitz, the occupational therapists work in the areas of child and adolescent medicine, geriatrics, stroke units (stroke), neurology, traumatology, psychiatry, psychosomatic medicine and psychotherapy. Due to the variety of possible uses of this professional group, there are different possible uses and concepts. PHYSICAL THERAPY is the treatment of disturbed physiological functions with natural resources such as water, heat, cold, light, static-mechanical and dynamic forces. It is particularly important to prevent or eliminate misregulations. Physiotherapeutic measures are used in prevention, therapy and rehabilitation. Family training is an important part of physiotherapeutic treatment. "With active identification , we secure the future of our company through mutual success.
