We advise you not to bring any valuables, jewellery, or large sums of money. The hospital is not responsible in the event of loss or theft of these articles. These articles may be deposited at the reception, either personally or by the nursing staff of your unit.

All single rooms are equipped with a personal safe. You can choose your own code. Patients in two or four bedded rooms may also hire a safe. You should ask the nurse in charge of the unit for more information.

Also think about...

  • Ask your doctor complete the certificate of inability to work as soon as you arrive. You are personally responsible for sending this certificate to your employer or health insurance.
  • Notify your employer.
  • If applicable notify your post office to arrange to change payment arrangements for your pension.
  • Notify the nursing staff if your family will stay with you over night. This is only possible in a single room.
  • Take your patient identification with you to every investigation.
  • Notify the nursing staff whenever you intend to leave the unit (for example to drink a coffee with your visitors)
