The incidence in the Bad Tölz-Wolfratshausen district is still very high at 656.7.

The Asklepios City Clinic Bad Tölz currently cares for 34 Covid patients as inpatients (as of November 25).

In addition, additional intensive care beds were created.

Bad Tölz - The Asklepios City Clinic has provided inpatient and outpatient care to 930 Covid patients since the beginning of the pandemic in March 2020. 104 of these were who had to be treated in the intensive care unit.

"But the burden has never been as high as it is now," says a press release from the clinic.

More than ten percent of all beds in Bad Tölz are occupied by Covid patients

On Thursday, nine of the 34 corona patients had to be treated in the intensive care unit.

More than ten percent of all beds in Bad Tölz are occupied by Covid patients.

In the entire district there were only two free intensive care beds on Thursday.

There are also only a few available in the other clinics in the Oberland Rescue Association, which includes the districts of Bad Tölz-Wolfratshausen, Weilheim-Schongau and Garmisch-Partenkirchen.

Of six operating theaters, only two are currently in operation

The intensive care unit at the Tölzer Klinik has ten regular intensive care beds.

There are also four IMC beds for patients in the treatment stage between intensive care and normal wards.

In order to create staff and capacities for the treatment of additional, seriously ill Covid-19 patients as a result of the "further alarming corona figures, the clinic started operations that could be planned and not on November 11 - before the disaster was declared again postpone urgent treatments, ”the press release said.

Of the six operating theaters, only two are currently in operation.

Clinic creates additional intensive care beds

A second ward for patients with intensive care needs was set up in the recovery room.

Employees from other wards help in the emergency room, the Covid ward or the intensive care unit.

The Asklepios City Clinic Bad Tölz can keep additional intensive care beds ready and now operate a total of 17 of them.

Care of the patient "often goes to the limit"

“The employees mobilize everything they can to care for patients suffering from Covid.

The physical and emotional stress, especially for the teams in the intensive care unit, the emergency room or the Covid ward, is enormous and not infrequently reaches its limits, ”says managing director Felix Rauschek.

"The commitment and motivation with which the teams face this challenge is admirable."

The vast majority of patients in the intensive care unit are unvaccinated or not fully vaccinated

The fact that "the vast majority of corona patients who previously had to be treated in the intensive care unit are unvaccinated or not fully vaccinated" is frustrating for the workforce.

The low vaccination rate in the district of just 58 percent is proving to be a major problem here.

Rauschek: “Our appeal is: Get vaccinated and take advantage of the booster vaccination offers.

Complete vaccination protection offers the best protection against severe Covid courses. ”Va / tk
