We treat adult patients suffering from cancer in our ward. Our treatment can be curative, hindering the progress of disease or alleviating the symptoms of the disease.
We admit patients
- from the outpatient ward of oncology
- from the joint emergency
- transferred from another ward or treatment centre
A daily inpatient fee or a clinic fee is collected from the treatment. A fee for certificates and statements can also be collected.
At the ward you will be assigned a personal nurse, and if required, a practical nurse. They will discuss your disease and treatment and compile a treatment plan for your hospital stay with you. The emphasis of the treatment relationship is on listening, supporting and answering questions.
Your next of kin are a valuable resource to us as well. With your consent, we will give them information about your disease and treatment.
There are 24 beds in our ward. The patient rooms are single and double rooms. The rooms have
- a toilet and a shower
- a locker for storing personal belongings and clothing
- a TV, a radio and an internet connection, some rooms also have a DVD player
