We consider each patient to be unique and distinctive, and we appreciate all
our patients regardless of nationality, religious beliefs, race, sex, level of
education, or capacities. Human dignity and worthiness are untouchable and are
guaranteed in cases of illness, seniority, and mental or physical
Our tasks and objectives:
All patients at the Orthopaedic Hospital Vienna-Speising receive care
according to their individual problems and needs.
The nursing staff is trained to recognise the patients resources while
performing nursing work and adjusting the care programme accordingly.
Assistance with self-help, transference of care, and learning how to cope with
deficits is the daily aspiration of our professional care.
Patients who entrust their health care to us are provided with up-to-date care
according to the self-care model presented by Dorothea Elizabeth Orem. Orem
assumes that every human being has needs and capacities for self-care.
A self-care deficit arises if preconditions for self-care are not available or
are only insufficiently available or if self-care requirements exceed
capacities and skills. During care anamnesis, the medical staff is required to
learn the extent to which the patient needs care assistance.
According to Orem, when the self-care deficit has been determined, a systematic
and purposeful care programme is elaborated and scheduled objectives and
determined activities are discussed together with the patient to respect the
patients required self-reliance and his or her individual needs.
