Long-Stay Ward

The Long-Stay Ward (LSW) follows the concept of geriatrics. It renders an overall curative- preventive, nursing and rehabilitation care.

LSW is determined for the patients:

  • whose health state is stabilised
  • whose diagnosis and therapeutic procedure is determined
  • who do not require a demanding medication treatment

The clients of the Ward are predominantly the patients with chronic diseases:

  • after ictus (cerebrovascular and coronary accidents)
  • after injuries and fractures
  • with disorders of locomotive apparatus
  • with allergic syndromes

We admit adult patients of any age after the end of diagnostic process, and with the managed acute state and determined diagnoses. The LSW is for the patients whose health state is stabilised, and who need a long-stay medical treatment, rehabilitation and daily doctors´ rounds.

The patients are admitted if they are recommended by head physicians from other hospitals based on applications (applications for admission according to the Bulletin of the Ministry of Health of the Slovak Republic), or from homes if recommended by general practitioners.

The length of hospitalisation depends on the health state of patient, but it is 21 days in average.
