The smallest patients are currently having a particularly difficult time. Because Swiss children’s hospitals are overcrowded. And children are transported across Switzerland in search of free beds. Blick recently reported: In one case, a child was flown from Zurich to Geneva.

This week the children’s clinic at the cantonal hospital in Winterthur ZH sounded the alarm. “We have a lot of small patients and often no more free beds for them,” says chief physician Traudel Saurenmann (62) to the “Landbote”. It is rare for children’s hospitals throughout Switzerland to be overcrowded. “We’ve never had it as bad as this year,” said the chief physician.
