Celje – "This is the heart of the hospital, where the heaviest patients are being treated, we always go through the knives' heads, many die, we are confronted with tragedies and happy stories," said the 40th anniversary of the independent intensive internal medicine department of the Professor's Professor. dr Matej Podbregar. Today, the unit has eleven hospital beds, with 400 to 450 patients each year being treated. Unfortunately, 20 to 24 percent of them die.
"We work hard, but sometimes we can not help it anymore, you have to learn to accept it. It can not be," said one of the sisters led by the chief nurse Darja Podsedenšek. As they wrote about the anniversary, the department's work relies heavily on sisters who work in three transitions, almost 80 percent are sisters: "Nurses have to master virtually all kinds of controls, but they do not observe and control only the physiological but also the mental state of the patients. Patients spend most of their time, so often the first and only people announce changes. They should have a lot of knowledge, experience and ability to act quickly and at the right time. "

In order for patients to have an intensive section, the internal rules of the hospital were already known already in the 1960s. As the former head said, he did this work until July of this year, cf. prof. dr Gorazd Voga, they quickly discovered that this was not enough: "They chose to be an independent department, the first independent Ljubljana Department in Slovenia." As Voge wrote, the section was joined by other young physicians: "We all learn at our intensive care center in Ljubljana, which also offered constant support to the department with invaluable professional organizational support."

They stressed the importance of education all the time and, as Podbregars said, their advantage is: "We have a lot of intensive medical specialists, which is unique in Slovenia." Podbregar said: "It will work with patients who work with patients and, given their that they work with patients, better quality and faster career development. "
Everyone emphasized the importance of the team, which, as they say in a hospital, is unique in this chapter. There are seven doctors and 26 nurses. "This department is a hospital horseman and one of the foundations with which we can do the work in this way. The key is staffing, it's a department that works together as one. There is no room for buyers, people and relationships," concluded Celje Hospital Director Franci Vineschar.
