Rudolfinerhaus Privatklinik GmbH
Important information – COVID 19
To be able to enter Rudolfinerhaus, proof of low epidemiological risk must be presented (vaccinated, PCR-tested or cured).
As proof of a negative test for SARS-CoV-2 we accept
- Molecular biological test (PCR test) not older than 48 hours
- Antigen tests are not accepted
This also applies to patients of our outpatient clinics and consultation rooms, Diagnostic Imaging and Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation.
Inpatients must present a negative PCR test result no older than 48 hours on the day of their admission. Because of the shorter validity of the test results, we advise our patients whose inpatient admission or dayclinic procedure is planned for Mondays to get tested on the Saturday before in the afternoon or, at the latest, on Sunday morning.
In Vienna, the “Gurgelboxen” are open on weekends by appointment and free of charge. We also accepts tests by the “Alles gurgelt” programme https://allesgurgelt.at/wien. Exceptionally, you can get tested at Rudolfinerhaus on the Saturday before your admission between 11 am an 12 pm. For patients with Austrian private health insurance, the test is covered by your insurance. This applies also if you are already vaccinated against COVID-19!
Dayclinic patients scheduled for endoscopic procedures have to present a negative PCR test result as well. The same rules for the validity of the test results apply.
Fathers or accompanying persons who are admitted to a family room together with the expectant mother also have to present a negative PCR test.
In case of a suspected Corona infection due to symptoms such as:
Fever, cough, shortness of breath, sore throat or a recent loss of taste or smell
Personal contact with a potentially infected person within the last 14 days
don’t go to a hospital or a doctor’s practice, stay at home!
Call the official Corona hotline at 1450 to obtain instructions.
