New rules for visitors: With the App, to the hospital

The moving boxes not unpacked still. The Corona-crisis-is your come up. And a lot of work. Ulrike dispute is in the function "management hospital management" at the University hospital operates only in February she moved to Frankfurt. The clinic has met, therefore, only a short time in normal operation. Then, Corona and the state of exception came.

That you had hardly a chance in the familiar clinical routine to incorporate, have you felt in retrospect, as an opportunity, she says. Because just because you were not all the processes in Detail known, she had the possibility of radical decisions to advance. About the systematic division of the clinic in a Corona and Non-Corona area and the introduction of a General visit to prohibition, long before the country did this. "It was a jump into the cold water."

"We need to be able to control who moves in the house"

Now apply in Hessian hospitals since Wednesday relaxed rules for visitors: patients are allowed to receive in the first six days, a total of two times visit to. From the seventh day to the daily visit of a maximum of two persons may be received. But the University does not want to go this step entirely. As a Corona-focus clinic care in addition, many critically ill patients, it is also still very important, the Hygiene and safety rules be strictly observed, says the dispute. It is necessary to protect staff and patients. "We need to be able to control who moves in the house." Locker this approach would be in the ditch. Exceptions, however, as during the acute pandemic phase, is possible. For parents who wish to visit their children, or for relatives of critically ill palliative care patients.

dispute wants to relax the ban on visitors in the long run. But not right now. Not in this uncertain Phase, she says. "If we had to open the Station for visitors, would be the System out of control." The hospital wants to be prepared and plans to manage visitor requests in the future, with the help of an App. The System assigns visitors to a time and sent at the same time a Code is read at the entrance of the clinic. Without this, entry will be denied. So, it could be ensured that never a lot of visitors stop at the same time in the house. The visit time is running out, warns the App with a Signal.

With a App patients

The clinic Manager thinks analytically. She sees a Problem she wants to solve it. With the resources available to it. The Corona-crisis, but require all Participants to a new "organisational culture and mindset", the willingness, the old structures of questioning, says the dispute. Much of what was introduced during the pandemic, the University hospital is new, will also continue, if the exception condition is terminated.

So, for example, better coordination of outpatient patients. "We'll try to arrange that there is a Just-in-Time-principle", explains the dispute. It was important to avoid waiting times in order to minimize contact with other patients. Also, another App in the planning stage, which helps in the scheduling of appointments for outpatient treatments. Patients should in addition get directly on the phone to get directions sent to, so that you can go specifically to their study places. The aim is, with the help of the App to better understand, and control plan, as many people are when and where.

the dispute is not afraid to try New things. On The Contrary. "One must stretch the head out and go forward." According to this principle, it has also on 13.March traded. The day on which you withdrew, together with Jürgen Graf, the medical Director of the University hospital, in an office, all the possible scenarios that could be triggered by the Virus, through play. "We have vowed that we will come out until we have a Plan." It was late by the time this Plan was – and it is in part up to today. A radical incision in the hospital everyday. For the protection of patients, the protection of employees, such as armed says. A simple Flipchart, you have the count counted the number of Corona-intensive the house beds would need in the worst case. They came to 200. At least with this prediction, they were wrong. Because, in fact, more than 40 Corona never had to be treated intensive care patients at the same time. Created by the structures would have to be more powered.
