Klinik Im Park follows the recommendations of the Swiss Patient Safety Foundation with respect to patient safety precautions.
After admission, you will be given a patient wristband on the nursing care unit. Your name, date of birth and attending physician are noted on the wristband. Our nursing staff will check the information on the wristband with you to ensure that it is correct. The patient wristband is particularly useful to the nursing staff for identifying the patient in the following situations: before, during and after surgery, during the recovery phase, for checking infusion therapies, when administering medications and when taking blood samples. Klinik Im Park recommends the wristband to be worn at all times throughout the patient's stay.
Surgical site marking
If surgery is planned, the side of the body to be operated on will be marked whenever possible with a waterproof marker before preparation for surgery. Our nursing staff will instruct you to perform the marking yourself if it has not already been done by the operating surgeon.
Surgical Safety Checklist (SSC)
Klinik Im Park uses a checklist for surgical procedures. All necessary information and procedures for the surgery are noted on the checklist. The checklist will be systematically reviewed by our nursing staff. To check your identity, you will again be asked to give your name and date of birth.
Questions related to identity
We will continually check your identity throughout the treatment process. You will be asked to give your name and date of birth in certain situations. This procedure adds to your safety and security during your stay with us. Thank you for your understanding in this matter.
Strict hand hygiene is a top priority at Klinik Im Park. The correct application of hand disinfection enhances patient safety. We raise awareness of the importance of hand disinfection when dealing with our patients through regular staff training.
