HOW TO BEHAVE IN EVENT OF A MEDICAL EMERGENCY
1. Is there an immediate danger? Then it is essential that you call an ambulance on the national emergency phone number 112 and under no circumstances should you drive the patient to hospital yourself.
2. If the patient cannot leave the house and needs a home visit from one of our doctors, this can be arranged by phoning 116 117.
3. If the patient can leave the house, then come unannounced directly to the Emergency Practice in the Marienhospital. You can use the access for lying patients from Eierstrasse. (No permanent parking in the courtyard). On public transport, you can reach us on bus number 41 (to bus stop Marienhospital) or by underground lines 1 and 14 (to station Erwin-Schoettle-Platz).
4. Report to the reception of the Emergency Practice (1st floor - lying patients arrival / Liegendkrankenvorfahrt). Here you will need to show your health insurance card. You will then be given an emergency ticket.
5. Take your emergency ticket and go to the reception of the Emergency Practice on the same floor. There, please explain to the non-medical staff as accurately as possible the nature of your complaints, so that any necessary preliminary examinations can be carried out directly.
6. Then go to the waiting zone on Level 1. We will try to treat you as soon as possible. Do not be surprised if patients who arrived after you are called in for treatment before you. Depending on the number of patients waiting to see individual specialists, waiting times may vary. Acute emergencies will naturally be given priority.
