Children’s-/Parent’s Hospitalisation

Dear parents,

The fact that your child is ill, is very worrying. We would like to take a part of your load and answer first questions. What will you and your child await in the Children’s and Youth Hospital AUF DER BULT? First of all a great deal of understanding, an atmosphere adapted to the children’s age and especially an individually adjusted examination and treatment.

Ambulance and Admittance Centre (AAZ)

The Ambulance and Admittance Centre (AAZ) is the first point of contact for our patients in the Children’s Hospital AUF DER BULT.
Children and adolescents, who have been referred to the Children’s and Youth Hospital for diagnosis and treatment by general practitioners, are being admitted and will be directed to the required treatment. For planned presentation at the hospital, an appointment shall be agreed.

We also treat acutely injured children and adolescents, who are being categorised as being "emergencies", such as traffic and school accidents. Furthermore, the AAZ coordinates registrations and appointment requests. Parents and patients receive information concerning the further treatment process.
