This is how the clinic list was created
- Many patients! At the clinics presented above, doctors have great experience with the surgical removal of diseased disc tissue (OPS 5-831), because only hospitals perform this surgery on an above-average basis have been taken into consideration. Hospitals are obliged to inform about their medical treatment in quality reports and to provide this information to the Federal Joint Committee.
- High Level of Patient Satisfaction! The level of patient satisfaction of the clinics in the list is at least 85 per cent. This is the result of a survey by the German health insurance companies AOK, the BARMER Ersatzkasse and the Kaufmännische Krankenkasse (KKH) in cooperation with the “Weisse Liste”. Every year, almost half a million of insured people are being questioned about their hospital stay.
- Good Hygiene! Many patients suffer from an infection during their hospital stay, which is why good hospital hygiene is important. All the clinics attach above-average value to patient safety. At least 45 out of 55 measures are taken in order to guarantee optimal hygiene before, during and after surgery.
This is just a small selection of German clinics. Of course, many other hospitals also offer a high quality of treatment.
