There for you in an emergency

For acute medical emergencies, we are your first point of contact. After an initial care, stabilization and diagnostics we decide together how to proceed. In addition to eight interdisciplinary treatment rooms, diagnostic methods such as ultrasound, cardiac catheterisation / ECG and MRI / CT are available.

Equipped for emergencies

Interdisciplinary emergency department – an independent discipline

Since May 2013, there is an independent, interdisciplinary emergency department (INA) at Schoen Clinic Düsseldorf. This takes into account a development that has proven itself worldwide and can shorten waiting times and decision-making paths.

Particularly in the acute situation of a medical emergency, the assignment to a specialist discipline is difficult - many emergencies relate to several organ systems and disciplines. The INA of Schoen Clinic Düsseldorf is the first point of contact for all patients with acute symptoms. Following a proven triage system, patients will be treated according to your urgency and disease severity.

Specialists for the first two to three hours

The medical and nursing staff at INA are distinguished by their high level of expertise in their emergency medical knowledge, their interdisciplinary treatment approach and their social commitment. The INA team are specialists for the first two to three hours. During this time, it is important to stabilize, diagnose and treat and then decide whether the patient remains in inpatient treatment, is relocated or continues to be cared for by the family doctor.

Eight interdisciplinary treatment rooms are available for stabilization, diagnostics and acute therapy. For further diagnostics, sonography devices, ECG devices and monitors, an in-house laboratory, an X-ray department (including MRI and CT), a cardiac catheterisation laboratory and an operating room are available. There are cooperations with the Neurological Clinics and Stroke Units of the Martinus Hospital and the University of Düsseldorf as well as with the Urological Clinic in Golzheim.

Sonographic diagnostics

Special importance is attributed to sonographic diagnostics, which is a fixed training concept for trainee specialists. Ultrasound, including all Doppler / Duplex procedures, is considered the first-choice imaging technique in the diagnosis of abdominal pain, thyroid disorders, shoulder discomfort, and the diagnosis of arterial and venous vascular disease. The use of sonographic contrast agents in the diagnosis of tumours or in sonographic interventions is an established, efficient and low-side-effect alternative to other imaging techniques.
