RKW Wasserburg supports the intensive care unit of the Rosenheim Hospital. In order to protect patients and medical staff from the virus in the best possible way, RKW has provided transparent plastic film for use in the intensive care unit. The film is stretched over the patient beds in a size of 3 x 5 metres each and shields the patient during treatment.

As the material is scarce, Johannes Heintges, Director Site Wasserburg, did not hesitate for long and delivered a 100 kg roll to Rosenheim on the same day of the contact request. "Dr. Katharina Lenherr from Intensive Care Unit 4 was visibly moved and grateful for our quick and unbureaucratic help when nowhere else was the right film available for purchase," says Jürgen Forster from RKW Wasserburg. For him, too: Fast and unbureaucratic help is more important than ever these days.
