    Carrying Patients in former times

    This old stretcher is quite different to those we know by watching 'Emergency Room' on TV. It was used in 1850 in Diakonissenanstalt Kaiserswerth on the Rhine.
    I wonder about the cover on top. Was it used in general or only for expired / passed away Patients?
    I found this stretcher in the entrance of the nursing directorate / PDL (Pflegedienstleitung) of
    Florence Nightingale Hospital
    Düsseldorf - Kaiserswerth

    How to reach from Duesseldorf or Duisburg: take the subway U79 to station Barbarossaplatz (central Kaiserswerth). The Hospital is on the right side of the tram trail when coming from Duesseldorf. The Rhine with the imperial castle is on the left side.

    Düsseldorf-Kaiserswerth is in the north of Düsseldorf at the Rhine. It's a beautiful part of town with a lovely market square, a *** restaurant, a wonderful beergarden (Burghof) and the ruins of the emperial palatinate ("Kaiserpfalz") from the 9th century. It used to be the home for Emperor Barbarossa and was destroyed in the Spanish succession war later.

    Kaiserswerth is a very picturesque medieval village about 9 km North of Düsseldorf. You can either get there by tram, go for a boat ride from downtown Düsseldorf or even walk there along the Rhine. See the ruins of emperor Barbarossa's castle and finish your trip by sitting in one of the beergardens overlooking the Rhine.

    The riverside in the northern suburbs! If you do not like crowded places (and the riverside downtown is always packed in the summer...), thats the place to go... right at Kaiserswerth ferry, there is a nice and peaceful 3km walkway, where u can go for a walk, or rollerblade! A few hiden cafes in the area, where u can always make a lil pitstop for some good 'Kaffee und Kuchen' =)
