Klinikum Nordfriesland

(lates update: 06.08.2020)

Dear readers,
After only being there for you with reduced capacity during the beginning of the corona-pandemic in spring 2020, we can now fully assist you again with our broad extent of inpatient and outpatient care.
To protect our patients, visitors and employees and due to corresponding specifications of the federal state, we kindly ask you to comply with several effective hygiene measures. Despite general eases in public life, special safety rules are still valid for hospitals. These rules apply for visitors and accompanying people.

Please note the added information on residents and travellers returning back from national risk areas in section 3.1 and 3.3. These regulations follow specification of the federal state Schleswig-Holstein.

We would like to clarify all conditions that have to be paid attention to to prevent the spread of infections briefly in the following.

We apologise for any inconvenience and ask for your compliance. Thank you for your contribution.
Stay healthy.

Your Klinikum Nordfriesland

1. Our extent of treatment

Our Clinics, MVZ doctor’s offices and the Therapiezentrum at the three locations can provide you again with most of their treatments. Except for some exceptions, inpatient and outpatient care is performed as regular.

Unfortunately, the geriatric day care in Husum and Niebüll are not yet active. Moreover, ENT surgeries cannot take place in the clinic Niebüll so far and the Therapiezentrum Nord cannot operate outpatient speech therapy. Physiotherapie for outpatients can only operate with a valid prescription.

1.1. Covid19 treatment structure

The federal state Schleswig-Holstein has created so called „Versorgungscluster“ for the treatment of Covid19-patients. At the west coast this cluster contributes to a cooperation between the main and general hospitals. At first, the main hospitals in Itzehoe, Heide and Flensburg will treat Covid19-patients. All the other hospitals – also the Klinikum Nordfriesland- will stay “Covid19-free”. The Klinikum Nordfriesland overtakes the treatment of non-Covid19-patients. The rescue service is informed and admits patients to the intended hospitals.

The Klinikum Nordfriesland eventually overtakes Covid19-patients as soon as capacities in the main hospitals are exhausted. The clinics Husum, Niebüll and Wyk/Föhr are prepared and have installed isolation areas that are separated from the daily hospital routine.

1.2. Emergency care

Inpatient and outpatient emergency treatments proceed unlimited. In case of an emergency you can visit our emergency department at any time and the KVSH emergency doctor’s office at the opening hours. Do not hesitate to contact our doctor's offices or our emergency department after an accident or when experiencing uncommon health symptoms.

For gentle cases you can get consultation when dialing 116117. For severe cases please dial 112.

1.3. Obstetrics

The team of the delivery department Husum is always welcoming pregnant women to ask questions. Moreover, treatments prior to birth and deliveries take place.

The Clinic Husum offers Boarding-Apartments for pregnant women from the (undiked) islands. Especially for them, the county Nordfriesland has installed a hotline to for example secure the care of siblings.

1.4. Accidents and uncommon health symptoms? Do not hesitate!

Not only the Klinikum Nordfriesland had noticed that the use of emergency departments had declined. Please do not hesitate to contact our doctor's offices or our emergency department after an accident or when experiencing uncommon health symptoms. For severe cases please dial 112.
Consider that postponed or omitted acute treatments may lead to health consequences.

1.5. Elective treatments and surgeries

We can now fully assist you again with our broad extent of patient care.
If you are in need of an urgent treatment or surgery do not hesitate to contact our speciality departments.

1.6. MVZ doctor’s offices and outpatient or preadmission treatments

Our MVZ doctor’s offices are here for you with their full extent of patient care. All patients have to wear a mouth-nose-protection during their stay at the clinic.

Here too, do not hesitate to contact our doctor's offices or the speciality department if you are in need of an urgent treatment or surgery.

1.7. Therapiezentrum Nord

The Therapiezentrum Nord in the clinics Husum and Niebüll and in the RGZ can provide you again with most of their treatments. You are very welcome to arrange appointments.

Requirement for a treatment at any of the locations (Husum, Niebüll, Tönning) is a valid prescription further on. All patients have to wear a mouth-nose-protection during their stay at the clinic and the RGZ.

Unfortunately, outpatient speech therapy appointments are still not possible.

1.8. (Lecturing) events

The Klinikum Nordfriesland has cancelled all events for the upcoming time. We will inform you about the restart of the midwifery consultation-hour, the blood donation and the lecturing events on this website. For further information please follow the media, too.

2. Hygiene and distance arrangements
