Important information

Under strict safety precautions, the hospital has resumed all patient treatments and care

The number of patients suffering from Covid-19 disease has been stagnating for several weeks at the University Hospital in Tübingen. In close cooperation with the state government of Baden-Wuerttemberg and the other university hospitals in the state, the University Hospital of Tübingen has decided to slowly open up hospital operations. With this, we want to provide adequate care for patients with diseases that require urgent medical treatment. Safety precautions are applied at all times.

Measures for the protection of patients and employees:

  • The University Hospital contacts all patients by telephone the day before their appointment and inquires about their state of health.
  • Patients are admitted to the clinic buildings at the earliest 45 minutes before their appointment. There should always be as few people as possible in the waiting areas. Patients should leave the clinic immediately after their treatment.
  • Currently there are no open consultation hours at the University Hospital Tübingen: Patients can only come to the clinic by appointment or in case of an emergency.
  • All patients who come to the hospital as outpatients or inpatients will receive a simple mouth and nose protector from the hospital at the entrances/gates. This must be worn permanently in the hospital.
  • A sufficient distance of at least 1.5m must be maintained at all times. For this reason, the waiting areas in the hospital have been completely redesigned and the registration has been reorganised where possible.
  • From Monday, 27.4.2020, all patients and their accompanying persons will fill out a short questionnaire. You are welcome to fill it out at home the day before and bring it with you.

  • Contactless fever measurement of all patients
  • Please note further information at the entrances

Important visitor information

Visitor stop
It is essential that you report at the registration desk of the department before visiting patients!

Safety precautions are applied at all times

Visiting relatives in hospital is possible, albeit with restrictions. Between 3 and 6 p.m. in-patients may receive one visiting person per day. This visit is limited to a maximum of 30 minutes. For the duration of the hospital stay, the number of visitors per patient is limited to two different persons. In individual, sensitive ward areas of the University Hospital (e.g. intensive care unit, haematology) further restrictions may apply.

To ensure the greatest possible safety for patients and staff, the number of people visiting is clearly limited and is strictly monitored by the University Hospital staff.

Persons who would like to visit their hospitalised relatives at the University hospital must arrange their visit with him/her in advance.
Before entering the building, visitors are asked to fill out a questionnaire and their temperature is taken by contact-less fever screening - if necessary, special safety measures are taken to prevent infection. Visitors will be given an easy-to-use, perfectly hygienic, basic mouth-nose protection at the entrances or gates. This nose and mouth mask must be worn permanently in the hospital. This also applies to the time spent in the patient rooms.

Download questionnaire in advance

Relatives are asked to contact the ward staff in urgent cases, e.g. when wanting to accompany the dying. Accompanying persons are only permitted in justified exceptional cases, e.g. accompanying a child in need of medical attention or a relative suffering from dementia, as well as fathers-to-be.

The patient to be admitted may be accompanied by one person.

Despite the somewhat relaxed restrictions, there is still a ban on people -visiting hospitalised patients, when: 
  • having symptoms of respiratory infection or increased temperature
  • having had contact with a Covid-19 patient or someone suspected of being infected with Covid-19 and still not being informed about the outcome within the last 14 days, or
  • having contracted Covid-19 themselves in the last four weeks or having been suspected of having contracted Covid-19 without being tested

Patient events are still not taking place.
The University Women's Hospital offers some of its courses and events online via webinars or videos. All information can be found on the website of the University Women's Hospital: www.uni-frauenklinik-tuebingen.de.
