To do this, 3 conditions need to be met:
- the paediatrician will issue a referral for the hospital
- your health insurer will provide written approval of the procedure on a full in-patient basis
- you remain at the AKK for one night with your child
Thanks to the cooperation with the Altona Children’s Hospital, we are able to provide those children who need maximum anaesthesiological care with exactly that maximum.
Even if anaesthesia techniques today meet the highest standards of safety, there are still residual risks, which are explained in detail in our information sheet. As parents, however, you too play a major part in your child’s safety. We would therefore ask you to follow all rules of behaviour which you are given by us or the anaesthetist.
This information is available in your native language. You can communicate in the following languages at our practice:
English, German, Turkish, Croatian, Farsi, Portuguese.
Generally speaking, however, we would recommend that you bring an interpreter with you if you do not speak German with confidence.
