New episodes with Betty: a lot has happened since Betty’s Weiss took over the ward – doctors and nurses leave the clinic or start their service anew highly motivated. Again and again, the team is confronted with challenges and put to the test. And changes are also announced in Betty’s private life. The new season of “Betty’s Diagnosis” accompanies the ward nurse and her team through everyday hospital life on the admissions ward at Karlsklinik.
Dr. Tobias Lewandowski and Talula finally dare to take the step into marriage. But a stroke of fate changes everything from one day to the next.
Changes are also looming in Betty’s private life: Will she use the time while Oliver travels to South America to reflect on her marriage? What will happen with Dr. Frank Stern, whom she has known since school days but did not have the best memories of? Should she get involved in a relationship with him?
What is the new doctor, Dr. Christine Meinhardt, doing in this ward of all places? Does it have to do with her long-ago relationship with Prof. Alexander von Arnstett? In any case, she seems to be a red rag for his sister, Dr. Helena von Arnstett.
But it is not only private turbulence that is to play a role in the sixth season. Of course, there will also be no shortage of unusual or even quite everyday cases of illness, which the ward staff will deal with professionally and empathetically. They promise drama, suspense and always a dose of humor. The fates of the patients are brought close to the viewer and touch the heart. And not to forget: The disease diagnoses of the doctors in charge are one thing, the nurses’ handling of the diagnoses is another. The nurses establish close contact with the patients and see them first and foremost as human beings. In this way, they are able to look behind obvious symptoms and find a solution in an unconventional way.
