More than 360 people were treated at the emergency departments of Bratislava's University Hospital (UNB) - which in fact comprises five hospitals in the city - on Christmas Eve, the TASR newswire learnt from UNB spokesperson Petra Stano Maťašovská on Tuesday, December 25. The number of patients represents a rise of some 20 percent on the year.

"That said, last day and night were calm from the doctors' perspective," said the spokesperson for the country's largest health-care facility. "Nothing extraordinary happened."

There was a variety of reasons why people needed to see a doctor on Christmas Eve, most notably breathing problems, fevers and minor injuries sustained on icy pavements and roads. As is usually the case after Christmas Eve's dinner, 16 of the patients needed to see a doctor to dislodge a fishbone stuck in their throats. Meanwhile, eleven babies were born in UNB on Christmas Eve.
