Visitors to the mountain resort of Jasná Low Tatras who get injured e.g. while performing a sports activity in Jasná will not need to drive a long way to the nearest hospital in Liptovský Mikuláš anymore. They can be provided complete medical care in the new medical centre located next to the ski slope of Biela Púť. “Our private medical facility is able to provide surgical – traumatological care to treat all kinds of injuries caused by sports and other activities. Specialised medical staff which are available every day including weekends and bank holidays include a surgeon, an anaesthetist, 1-2 nurses and a trained operator of the RTG device. There is a hall inside the medical centre, an RTG room, a surgery and a waiting room. Our anaesthetist administers general anaesthesia as well. Our facility is equipped with a defibrillator, a vital signs monitor etc.,” said Leo Černý, a physician from the medical centre in Jasná.
He went on saying that there were similar facilities operating for 14 years in five other locations, e.g. in the mountains of Krkonoše and Šumava in the Czech Republic.
