Re: Hirslanden. Covid icu

Oh, I'm sorry to hear that.

As I understand it, the hospitals are currently having to decide from one week to the next, or even one day to the next, how to proceed. At any point, they know only more or less what's likely to take place over the next few days.

In any case they are taking measures to separate the patients with Covid from all other patients. The message is to avoid going to hospital just for the sake of any small matter that could be dealt with by a G.P. (family doctor), and rather to phone and check whether or not you should go to the hospital. At the same time, if you need treatment, do not hesitate to contact them. They are still carrying out many forms of treatment.

Here is the page from the Hirslanden Hospital, with the phone number of the department that schedules operations.

To get a different perspective, here is the City Hospital called "Waid und Triemli" (it's a fusion of 2 hospitals run by the City of Zurich), saying that they are still carrying out procedures, and to phone for help or enquiries.

What does your doctor say?
This. Ask for his/her opinion on
  • how urgent it is that you have the operation, and
  • how likely it is that you would need to be in an ICU afterwards.

I hope you and your doctor can work out the right way forward.
