Admission procedure

The admission procedure covers patients from 6 months to 18 years of age,.
In the case of pre-school children, the in-patient treatment is considered as a child/mother/father therapy.
The local physician applies for assumption of costs of an in-patient rehabilitation treatment to the competent funding agency. The application should contain a medical statement for the rehab treatment and information about the patient's potential for rehabilitation and prognosis.

Sample application form

In the case of children with psychic or psychosomatic problems, we recommend prior contact with the clinic; the same applies in cases where adult accompanying persons are also to receive in-patient treatment. Funding agencies may be the following: public or private health insurance companies, pension insurance companies, social assistance and welfare offices.

For children with psychological or psychosomatic problems our clinic offers the possibility of an intensified psychological complementary treatment which takes the form of individual consultations one to three times a week.

Since these consultations are charged on the basis of a separate cost unit rate, it is mandatory that prior to sending in the application you inform your referring pediatrician of your child’s psychological problems. At the same time you should ask him to list these problems in the application form and to certify that an intensified psychological complementary treatment is necessary.

This is the only way to ensure that the funding agency will grant the appropriate therapy for your child and that a psychological complementary treatment is included from the very beginning of the therapy. When you inform the pediatrician, make sure to point out any of the following symptoms that may have occurred preceding the therapy: your child has shown suicidal behavior or a tendency towards self-mutilation; your child went through traumatic experiences or familial crises; your child lacks essential social skills in dealing with others (strong aggressivity, phobic social behavior). In addition, we recommend prior contact in cases where adult accompanying persons are also to receive in-patient treatment. Funding agencies may be the following: , , .
