Please keep patient visits as short as possible (one hour per patient per day).

  • We recommend that patients who are in hospital for only short periods (less than 4 days) do not have any visitors.
  • Visitors have to wear a surgical mask for the entire visit.
  • Patients also have to wear a surgical mask when they leave their bed or room and whenever members of staff or visitors enter the room.
  • When visiting a patient, you will be given a “Visiting regulations” information sheet. Please complete the form with your personal details (last name, first name, phone number), the date of your visit, and the name of the patient you are visiting. Hand the form over to the staff in the nursing station. Your data will be deleted within three weeks at the outside.
