Interview of Fr. Martin Trieb O.S.B. with Fr. Gérard T. Lagleder O.S.B.

Why and when do you admit a sick person as an inpatient?

Why and when we admit a patient here does not depend so much on the diagnosis, but on the need. In other words: We admit patients here who cannot be nursed adequately at home.

The majority of our patients – it is difficult to express this in a percentage – but I believe I do not exaggerate when I say that 90% suffer from AIDS and AIDS rarely occurs on its own, it mostly comes in the triple combination AIDS, Tuberculosis and Sexually Transmitted Diseases. This is the dominant group of illnesses, which our patients suffer from.
