More tips on what to do in an emergency

Emergencies occur suddenly and unexpected. Emergencies come at inopportune moments and require timely, correct action. What can you do when something happens?

Keep calm. Gain an overview and act decisively.

In urgent cases, ring 144 (Switzerland) ; highly qualified specialists are available to help you around the clock.

The Hirslanden hospitals do not specialise in paediatric medicine. For emergencies involving children, we recommend you visit a children’s hospital or a Cantonal hospital. The only exception is our Clinique des Grangettes, which has experienced medical specialists available to treat children of all ages.
