The treatment and diagnostics of severe infections of adult patients is centred in our ward. We also treat other internal medicine patients in addition to infection patients. An important group is those patients, whose primary disease has not yet been diagnosed.
Most of our patients are admitted via emergency. In addition, some patients are transferred from other wards. We also admit patients from the infectious diseases outpatient clinic as follow-up patients or for intravenous antimicrobial drug treatment.
A daily inpatient fee is collected from the ward stay, and other visits are subject to either a clinic fee or a continuing treatment fee. See client fees.
Mon to Sun 1 pm to 7 pm.
Our duty is to arrange the treatment of severe or highly infectious infections of adult patients. Once a diagnosis is reached, the treatment is usually carried out by intravenous antibiotics, which may be ongoing in the hospital as continuing treatment (the patient visits the ward regularly to receive medical care).
We encourage our patients to give feedback actively. The follow-up care, discharge and monitoring of the patient is planned carefully with the patient, his/her next of kin, various wards, care units and ambulatory care.
We received the achiever of the year award presented by the hospital district in 2003 for the treatment of SARS patients.
We carried out the project "Good care for special patients" in our ward in 2008-2010.
Our ward is located in the same facilities as the dermatology ward. The ward of infectious diseases has 15 beds:
- 5 two person rooms and 5 single rooms
- the single rooms are primarily reserved for isolation patients
- the rooms are spacious and they have a TV, a toilet and a washing room
There is a common room in the ward for patients with a tv, a computer connected to the internet, a coffee maker, a microwave and a refrigerator. The use of mobile phones is permitted in the ward.
