A visit to the sick

What needs to be considered?

Your recovery process is greatly enhanced by personal contact with the family. Visits are important!

However, the duration and frequency of visits should depend on the patient's physical or psychological condition. Visits in intensive care and recovery wards are subject to different rules than those in a normal ward. No more than 2 people should visit at the same time. Children up to the age of 14 should not visit. We ask you to respect this!

  1. Children's diseases can be passed on to the patients.
  2. Intensive care impressions can be a psychological burden for children.

Visitors who have a cold must report to the staff before entering the patient's room.

Visiting hours in the intensive care unit are daily in the afternoon and evening or by personal arrangement. Before entering the intensive care unit, please sign in at the entrance to the unit. Due to the complex care of the patients, it is possible that you will have to wait outside the entrance of the ward or that you will be asked to leave the room or the ward. For hygienic reasons, it is not permitted to bring cut flowers and potted plants to the intensive care and monitoring ward.

If you wish, you can obtain more detailed information about your relative's condition from the attending doctor or the nursing staff who, through their work, are in particularly close contact with the patient. They will help you and refer you to the ward staff member responsible for the care of the relatives. In order to pass on information within the family, it is useful to have a contact person who maintains telephone and personal contact with the staff of the intensive care or monitoring ward. For legal reasons, we are not able to give information to distant relatives or acquaintances.

If you or your relatives need support with personal, social or psychological needs, the clinic's social services can be consulted. Religious assistance can also be requested as needed.
