German Ambulance

The German EMS system’s vehicles come in a wide variety of shapes and sizes. All of its vehicles must conform to most aspects of the requirements of European standard CEN 1789 as reflected in the German standard DIN EN 1789 (types A-C) or German standard DIN 75079. The visual identity requirements of the European standard are not yet being followed. The three major types of vehicle are:

  1. The Krankentransportwagen (KTW), a van-type ambulance used for non-emergency transport. It conforms to DIN EN 1789-A1/A2: “Patient Transport Ambulance single/multiple patient”
  2. The Rettungswagen (RTW), a larger van used for emergencies. It conforms to DIN EN 1789-C “Mobile Intensive Care Unit”
  3. The Notarzteinsatzfahrzeug (NEF), a station wagon or small van. Its purpose is to bring the Notarzt (Emergency Physician) to the scene of the emergency, when required. It conforms to DIN 75079

Additionally, the Mehrzweckfahrzeug (MZF), or multi-purpose vehicle – often referred to as a Notfallkrankenwagen or Kombinationsfahrzeug (KOM) – serves a dual role as patient transport vehicle and as backup for emergency responses and usually conforms to type B of DIN EN 1789.

Other vehicles that are also employed include neonatal units for special pediatric care and transport, ambulances for obese patients, special infectious transport units and disaster response supply vehicles. (Wikipedia)

Captured by:

The Prince Henry Hospital Trained Nurses Associations Nursing and Medical Museum came into being in order to preserve our nursing and medical history. The Museum is located on the original grounds of the Prince Henry Hospital where medical staff dedicated their lives to caring for the sick, the injured and patients in isolation, suffering from dangerous and highly-infectious diseases. It’s uniquely rich and historical exhibitions date from the late 1800s and provides a fascinating glimpse into an extraordinary period of medical history.

The Museum’s many fascinating displays include original medical artifacts laid out in the original hospital wards, with displays of historical and contemporary medical equipment that is carefully maintained by our staff of dedicated volunteers. If you require more information or wish to delve further into the site’s history, the Museum also features a well-stocked reference library and historical photo archive.

Visitors to the Nursing and Medical Museum are also welcome to explore the grounds around the museum which overlook the local coastline. Significant features of the site include the historic clock tower and the original hewn stone Wishing Well. A short walk down towards Little Bay and you come upon the striking modern lines of the Nurses’ War Memorial Chapel, with its amazing stained glass wall overlooking the ocean and breaking waves below. The beautifully designed chapel – situated atop a grassy hillside with grounds offering commanding views of the golf course and local coastline– is non-denominational and is a popular venue for weddings.

The Museum regularly hosts day and evening events in co-operation with Randwick City Council. These events feature visiting lecturers and qualified staff and focus on engaging the local community with health issues and the museum.
