The Outpatient Parenteral Antimicrobial Therapy (OPAT) Service is a outpatient intravenous (IV) antibiotic therapy, which enables patients to return home earlier, thereby shortening the duration of hospitalization and at the same time reducing the risk of contracting a hospital-acquired infection (nosocomial infection). This Therapy is suitable for a wide range of infectious diseases. OPAT is part of the international standard for antimicrobial therapy options.
As a patient, you cannot register for a consultation directly. Please ask your family doctor, your specialist to refer you.
