Their support begins before admission to hospital and continues during the stay with various visits. They ensure that patient requests are met and coordinate care providers throughout the hospital stay. They monitor patients after they are discharged and also manage post-hospital care, for requests from treatment and rehabilitation centres, medical care centres, etc.

CIRS - Critical Incident Reporting System

Our CIRS reporting platform is a reporting and learning system that allows the identification of risks or critical events. The system is an essential element of clinical risk management and allows the anonymised reporting of incidents that may occur during different procedures - e.g. during the administration of medication, communication, documentation, the exercise of standard processes or even the use of technical equipment. The goals of CIRS are the proactive handling of critical events, the further development of the hospital's internal safety culture and the increase of patient safety.
