The clinic says Vitos Hanna’s offer for psychiatry and psychiatry to treat patients at home rather than in a hospital has been well received.

Waldeck-Frankenberg – Vitos Haina offers a new form of treatment for people with serious mental illnesses who would otherwise have to be treated as patients in a psychiatric clinic. Ward-equivalent treatment (STAB) is the name for an in-your-home therapy program that was only approved by law in 2018.

Vitos Treatment in Korbach has been active since November 2019 in this form of treatment for the people of Nordwaldeck. Since this year, Vitos has been offering at-home treatment at the Frankenberg Staub for the mentally ill in Frankenberger Land.

“Based on positive feedback from patients and the success of the treatment, Vitos Hanna has expanded the range,” said spokesman Rouwen Ratz.

According to Vitos, the stab means that people with a serious mental illness are not treated in a clinic, but by a cross-professional team within their own four walls. There is direct personal contact between the sick person and the medical team member on each day of the week.

Veto was treated at home in Frankenberg by a specialist in psychiatry and psychiatry, Dr. Natalja Weidner, led. The treatment team includes a psychologist, several (specialist) nursing staff, a social worker as well as occupational and physiotherapists.

“The advantages of ward-equivalent treatment are that you are able to remain in a familiar environment despite intensive care and support, that you can continue to spend time with friends and family and that the daily structure does not change significantly,” Doctor. . Florian Metzger, head of the Hanna Clinic for Psychiatry and Psychotherapy, who started StäB. from Martina Bidenbach


Basically, according to Vitos, ward equivalent treatment is possible for all patients with mental illness in a serious crisis. For this a doctor’s briefing is necessary. The StäB team checks whether equal treatment for the same ward makes sense. StäB is not suitable for people who are at risk for themselves, others, addictions (weight in individual cases) or a serious serious physical illness.
