When medically appropriate, patients are officially discharged from the hospital, those patients who leave the hospital without this official discharge permission do so at their own risk. The clinic does not carry responsibility in such cases. See Allgemeine Vertragsbedingungen (German).


Ward physicians, senior physicians, chief physician – all of them are responsible for your treatment. The doctor in charge will create a therapeutic plan. The ward physician is your treating physician. Our doctors also prescribe your medications.
