In safe hands at Charité

Our primary aim is to ensure that all our patients can continue to access the very best diagnostic and treatment services at Charité – without having to worry about catching the coronavirus.

In order to prevent infections, we have developed a system of measures which we continue to implement and adapt.

You are here:

For us, safety comes first.

As a patient, you might be worried about the risk of contracting the coronavirus in hospital. While such concerns are understandable, they can put lives at risk – when acute symptoms are ignored, and treatment is deferred too long.

We would therefore like to introduce you to the measures we have taken to make Charité a safe place for all – our patients, our visitors and our staff.

Please feel free to have a look at how this works in detail.

Working together to keep everyone safe

Dear patients,

we are doing everything we can to protect you against infection with the coronavirus. 
We count on your support to help us ensure we can all stay safe.

Thank you!

1. Get vaccinated

Before arriving for your planned hospital stay, ensure you are fully vaccinated against COVID-19.

2. Minimize contacts

Minimizing exposure prior to your stay will also help to minimize the risk of infection.

3. Keep your distance

Continue to keep a minimum distance of 1.5 meters from others at all times: in your room, in corridors, in waiting areas, and outside.

4. Wear a face mask

Even if you are vaccinated: Always wear a mask when others are present and whenever you leave your room.

5. Wash or disinfect your hands

Continue to wash your hands before eating and after using the toilet. Wash them thoroughly using soap for a minimum of 20 seconds. Always use hand sanitizer when putting on or taking off your mask, before leaving your room, when returning to your room, and after wiping your nose.

6. Follow respiratory hygiene rules

Continue to turn away from others when coughing or sneezing. Always cough or sneeze into your elbow – even if you are wearing a mask.
