The Paediatric Interdisciplinary Emergency Room (PINA) is responsible for all patients who are admitted to Olgahospital for emergency treatment.
Treatment of emergency cases is carried out at all times by a paediatrician together with a paediatric surgeon, who take a look at the patients’ medical history and conduct an initial diagnosis. This interdisciplinary collaboration increases the accuracy of allocating patients to specialist departments. If, after having taken a look at the medical history and conducting the initial diagnosis, a clear medical allocation is not possible, patients are first admitted as PINA patients and continue to be treated on an interdisciplinary basis.
The PINA additionally has inpatient beds that can also be used as beds for patients with infectious diseases. If necessary patients may also remain in PINA until they are discharged.
