Domestic nursing for statutory accident-insured grant Unfortunately this specification of service has not yet been completely translated.

In the event of an accident at work or an occupational disease, accident insurance covers the costs of home care instead of health insurance.

In the event of an insurance, you will receive nursing care at home, for example, so as not to have to go to a hospital or to shorten a hospital stay. However, the treatment objective must not be jeopardised. The care includes, as required and prescription:

  • Basic care
  • Treatment care
  • Help in the household, for example for shopping, cooking, cleaning.

The accident insurance provides the costs in an appropriate amount.

Accident insurance institutions are:

  • Professional trade associations, broken down by sector
  • Public accident insurance institutions (municipal accident insurance associations, national accident insurance funds, fire brigade accident insurance funds)
  • Agricultural trade associations


  • Medical prescription
  • No person living in the household can take care of the nursing
  • The objective of the treatment is not endangered.
