Our ward consists of:
1. Acute treatment
With a referral from a general practitioner, patients can be admitted and treated around-the-clock in the internal geriatric medical general ward and internal geriatric medical private ward. The admissions wards ensure speedy diagnosis and treatment. “Activating therapy” means motivating patients to undertake their daily, routine activities themselves as much as possible. In the acute department, about 2000 admissions are dealt with each year.
2. Acute geriatrics, remobilization
The main focus lies on remobilization after acute treatment. Acute rehabilitation is especially important after strokes, fractures of the neck of the femur, cardiopulmonary illnesses, etc.. The department works in intensive collaboration with the various extramural facilities.
3. Clinic for the chronically ill
Patients, who cannot be appropriately taken care of in external nursing facilities, receive highly specialized geriatric care here. With the location within the hospital grounds and with its specially trained personnel, optimal care is guaranteed. Patients include those with serious neurological deficits, Alzheimer’s disease, apallic syndrome patients and patients with problematic decubitus.
4. Palliative ward
The palliative ward forms the foundation of the treatment of patients with incurable illnesses of all types. These patients generally wish to spend as much of their remaining time as possible at home. In the event that outpatient treatment has become impossible, patients are stabilized through close collaboration between nursing staff, doctors, psychologists, physiotherapists, counselors and social workers on this home-like ward. The services include the treatment of pain, support for affected relatives or loved-ones, organization of continued care and dealing with psychological strain. The aim is to offer the right environment during time spent on the ward and to ensure the highest possible quality of life after the forthcoming discharge to the home environment.
Further aspects of treatment include intensive physiotherapy, ergotherapy, speech therapy, social casework, music therapy, animals at the bedside, supportive psychological care as well as the “TAKE CARE” group.
