Medical staff

The sister staff is highly skilled with specialization in ARIP and nursing care in surgery. At the clinic, we use modern medical and nursing methods in which nurses are appropriately trained, for example, in the field of wound healing using the Vacuum Assisted Closure (VAC) system or using an ultrasonic wound cleaner. There are graduates of certified stoma care courses and wound healing courses. Our nurses are active members of the Stomatological Team of the General Teaching Hospital and act as lecturers of the certified Stomic Care course.

A stoma clinic was set up at the 1st Surgical Clinic to provide patients with high-quality treatment and at the same time provide stomics education and help them select appropriate and quality ostomy aids. In addition, the 1st Surgical Clinic established cooperation with the Czech ILCO, a voluntary association of stomics. Our sisters are also active in the Wound Healing Team. There is also a process of certifying the treatment and healing of wounds, which will allow for even better quality of patient care within the General Teaching Hospital and its practical training will take place at the 1st Surgical Clinic.
