Our interdisciplinary Central Emergency Room has become increasingly important due to the changes within the healthcare system and thus represents an elementary interface between outpatient and inpatient treatment.

Many of the patients seeking help do not come with a clear illness, but with complaints (symptoms) that need to be further clarified in the emergency room through appropriate examinations.

To ensure an optimal process, each patient is seen promptly and assessed using the globally recognised "Manchester Triage" grading system.

The triage system determines the urgency of treatment according to the disease.

The order of treatment of our patients depends on the severity of the illness. We therefore ask for your understanding if you cannot be treated immediately.

X-rays and computer tomography (CT) are available for necessary examinations, as well as the possibility of sonography (ultrasound) of the abdominal cavity and body vessels. An ultrasound examination of the heart can also be performed promptly.

Several treatment rooms are available for emergency care. Surgical emergency interventions can be performed directly within the Central Emergency Room.

The Central Emergency Room fulfils all structural and qualitative requirements for emergency care in accordance with the Hospital Structure Act by the Joint Federal Committee and is on call 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
