Criteria for admission

Comatose/apallic patients (without increased brain pressure and stable vital functions) and patients who are in the early stages of remission following brain damage and still require intensive medical monitoring and treatment are admitted to the Rehabilitation Unit for Intensive Care (Frührehabilitation). We also treat patients requiring respiratory assistance.

When patients no longer require intensive medical care and are able to actively participate in therapies for at least short periods of time, they may be admitted to the Rehabilitation Unit for Severely Disabled Patients (Schwerrehabilitation). In addition, we admit patients with less recent injuries but whose resulting disabilities necessitate intensive medical and therapeutic care.

The General Rehabilitation Unit (Allgemeine/Anschlussrehabilitation) admits patients who are largely self-sufficient in carrying out most everyday activities. Wheelchair-bound patients are also admitted.

Patients requiring vocational rehabilitation should be physically and cognitively able to participate in the training programs.

The setting in the Children’s House offers therapeutic and nursing services for children who require an increased amount of care and supervision due to physical and cognitive impairments.
