This “long overdue treatment site”, as Chief Physician Dr Klaus Schaffers, MD, calls it, will primarily serve men between the ages of 18 and 85. “It is well known, that this group are particularly severely affected by colds, and therefore need intensive care in order to save their lives.”

In the meantime, the patient’s relatives receive psychological support. If the patient’s fever rises above the dangerous level of 99.86 °F (37.7 °C), a hospital priest may be summoned if desired.
“Should our patients actually recover from the flu, of course we also offer a twelve-week rehabilitation programme”, says Schaffers.
To date, there has been no satisfactory explanation as to why men in particular suffer so frequently from life-threatening colds. First examination results concerning this are expected from the intra-hospital research group in about 17 weeks’ time, as soon as team leader Kai Triemitz has been cured of his cold.
