The number has risen sharply: almost 10,000 Salzburg residents are awaiting operations


The lack of staff in the clinics has major consequences for patients. They currently wait until 43 weeks for new hips or knees.

Children with hearing problems are currently exposed to unreasonable waiting times in Salzburg. As the “Krone” showed, they have to wait up to nine months for tonsil operations at the ENT University Hospital. According to the state clinics in Salzburg, the reason for this is the serious shortage of nursing staff. Adults with chronic inflammatory ear diseases also face the same fate as affected children, says a specialist. He says, “If you know someone, it goes faster.” However, the state clinics deny that privately insured people get it faster.
