Tübingen nurse in the forefront against COVID 19

Intensive childcare nurse on her way to Montenegro with RKI und humedica


The Kaufbeuren aid organization humedica sends out an intervention team member to Montenegro. Laura Schlucke from Tübingen, Germany, wants to assist the health care personnel on site with the intensive care of COVID 19 infected patients. The intensive childcare nurse takes part in a joint COVID 19 mission with experts from the RKI, the Charitè and humedica headed by the Robert Koch-Institute.

At present, Montenegro is considered a risk area, COVID 19 incidents are still running high and the local health care system has reached its limits. The intervention, initiated following a request from the Montenegrin government, aims to improve the treatment quality of COVID 19 patients. Therefore, Schlucke and her colleagues will primarily train the local health care staff for example in the fields of respiration, positioning and mobilization of patients as well as infection protection and controlling.

„Last year we have already cooperated with humedica in similar missions and know the professional expertise and the international practical experience of their intervention team members,“ says Dr. Andreas Jansen, the RKI-head of the Montenegro mission. „We are very glad that this time again we will work together with humedica.“

Laura Schlucke, too, had taken part in one of these interventions. In autumn 2020, she had already conducted such COVID 19 trainings in Namibia.
