"It is not easy to conduct such an exercise in this environment, since most of the facilities have their risers inside the buildings. At the helios st.

Patients were forewarned
In order to avoid misunderstandings, the exercise was announced to staff and patients in good time.

We rely on a good and close cooperation."
