Referrer information

Dear colleagues,

Please fill out a "clinical order" (KLAT) in the AKIM for each endoscopic examination for which an indication was made in the AKH (regardless of whether it is outpatient or inpatient). 

If you send an inpatient to an endoscopic examination, we ask you to insert a functioning large-lumen Venflon (preferably on the right arm for ERCP) in advance, give the patient the signed and completed information sheet and also provide all necessary findings (especially blood count, blood coagulation, blood group) to give. 

Patients who have been informed as outpatients need a signed and filled out information sheet and appropriate preparation (see patient information). 

If your patients are taking anticoagulants, insulin or antibiotics, please discuss the procedure in good time and switch to alternative medication if necessary. The patients should take the antihypertensive medication in the morning before the examination.
