Pre-admission testing

Convenient, on-site testing expedites your day of surgery admission

You can expedite your hospital admission by completing registration and testing requirements (lab/blood work, X-ray, EKG, etc.) before your arrival by completing the following:

  • Pre-registration paperwork, including paying out-of-pocket expenses
  • Pre-admission testing and evaluation prior to surgery
    For those who do so, you may proceed to the concierge desk where they will verify your identity and escort you to the pre-operative area.

A nurse from the pre-admission testing office will call you before surgery to review your medical history. To help make things run more smoothly on your day of surgery, you should anticipate the call two to seven days before surgery.

During the pre-admission testing call, a registered nurse will review:

  • Your medical and surgical history
  • Your current prescription medications and over-the-counter supplements
  • Required testing prior to surgery

To prepare for the call, please have the following available:

  • Your driver’s license (or picture ID) and insurance card(s)
  • A list of all your medications, with dosage and frequency:
  • Prescription medications
  • Herbal supplements
  • Vitamins
  • Over-the-counter medicines
  • Copy of your advance directives (i.e., a living will or medical power of attorney)

To learn more, call 214.820.6200.
