Note list

Help with the Note/Compare list

The "Note/Compare" list contains all hospitals that you have "noted" in one or more search result lists. The Note list remains in existence for as long as you are active on the DKV page. The Note list is deleted when you leave the DKV page.

The structure of "Note/Compare" is the same as that of the list of "Search results". Selected hospitals can be noted by clicking the check box "Include in the selection" in order to perform various actions:

Comparing hospitals
The two to five hospitals selected are displayed in comparison with each other.

Printing short profiles
The short profiles of the selected hospitals are created as PDF files and can be saved or printed.

Deleting hospitals
The selected hospitals are removed from the "Note/Compare" list.
