Medical Service

Elderly people need a special kind of medicine; their bodies react differently to medication compared to younger people; frequently they present several ailments and disorders at the same time (multi-morbidity) and in many cases have to take several different kinds of medication every day (poly-pharmacy).

The doctors at the EGZB have therefore received special training to take account of the particular aspects involved in treating elder patients. Together with internal and geriatric specialists, our acute care hospital also includes specialists for disorders of the urinary tract, metabolic diseases and nutritional experts. We also offer a specialist for clinical pharmacology.

Our acute care hospital treats patients

- with neurological disorders, such as acute strokes or Parkinson's disease
- in need of care following general surgery, e.g. partial resection of the stomach or removal of the gall bladder
- with fractures, particularly of the hip and related areas - for endoprothetic treatment of degenerative joint disease
- for mobilisation and restorative therapy in the treatment of tumours, e.g. after radiation or chemotherapy - with cardio-pulmonary diseases, e.g. heart failure or chronic obstructive lung disease
- with unsteady gait and frequent falls - with diabetes mellitus
- with acute infections, e.g. infection of the urinary tract, or pneumonia - with diagnosis and therapy for dementia, e.g. Alzheimer's
- for adjusting artificial joints - with incontinence problems
