Administrative Multinormativität in der Krankenhaus-Verwaltung am Beispiel der Charité in Berlin, 1820er- bis 1850er-Jahre

À propos de cet article


This article illustrates the significance and dimensions of administrative multinormativity by using the example of the Charité hospital in Berlin that served as a military and civilian medical teaching facility as well as a municipal hospital. The starting point is a report on the structural conditions of the Charité in the mid-1830s that was used to apply for additional financial resources. The article describes the processes that followed the application, analyses the competing public-state, medical, administrative, and economic norms and conflicting rationalities, and discusses how these conflicts were dealt with and what attempts were made to reconcile the different principles and expectations.
