Comprehensive resource-oriented nursing care

As qualified nursing staff, we are responsible for the 24/7 care of our patients. Our aim is to achieve an atmosphere of safety and trust. Thanks to our resource-oriented nursing care, we can send our patients home well informed and independent.

Orthopedic nursing as a career

Patients who have undergone orthopedic surgery receive highly professional nursing care during both the preoperative and postoperative phases of their hospital stay. We also care for rheumatology patients. Part of our job is to help in coordinating the hospital stay from admission to discharge.

Spinal cord injury nursing as a career

The care of patients with spinal cord injuries includes focussing particularly on wound management, mechanical ventilation care, and crisis intervention. We aim to help people with spinal cord injuries achieve as much independence as possible.

We encourage close cooperation with all the professional groups involved in patient care. In addition, Balgrist offers many employee benefits.
