In our neurological clinic in Bad Staffelstein, Franken, we specialise in neurological diseases and damage to the brain and nervous system. Comprehensive rehabilitation for all neurological treatment phases is our clinic’s particular focus. Our hospital offers medical care from a single source, from the respiratory care unit with intensive medical treatment to post-discharge rehabilitation.
In Bad Staffelstein Schoen Clinic, patients with a severe traumatic brain injury will find a clinic fully oriented to their needs. This is because we are specialists in rehabilitation, including first-stage neurological rehabilitation. Our aim is for our patients to regain their independence as much as possible. That is why we offer special training for each degree of severity to support our patients and to enable and mobilise them.
Many of our patients cannot breathe independently when their rehabilitation starts, but need permanent or partial support via a tracheostomy tube. Respiratory therapy therefore constitutes a particular focus of our first-stage neurological rehabilitation.
Bad Staffelstein Schoen Clinic has special expertise in post-stroke rehabilitation, including first-stage rehabilitation. Our multi-disciplinary team of more than 90 colleagues continues the intensive medical treatment of the acute phase. We start by building up our patients’ physical and mental abilities in parallel.
The independence and quality of life of our patients are our focus here. But you, as a relative or friend, also deserve our attention. We want to prepare our patients and their families comprehensively and individually for life after a stroke.
At Bad Staffelstein Schoen Clinic, we have the optimum set-up for the treatment and first-stage rehabilitation of patients with severe nerve damage. For this reason, more than 70 patients with a diagnosis of critical illness polyneuropathy (CIP) are referred each year to our specialist clinic following initial treatment in an acute care hospital. Because, on the one hand, we pursue treatment of the underlying disease and, on the other, we promptly initiate personalised first-stage neurological rehabilitation. We use a great number of mobility-enhancing measures and are successful in supporting the early regeneration of damaged nerves, thus improving the quality of life of the people entrusted to our care.
