Admission

Introduction
It’s normal to feel anxious about staying in the hospital, especially if you have never stayed in hospital before. Please know you’re not alone. You will have an entire healthcare team focused on your safety and well-being. I will give you some basic information about how you can be prepared for the admission. This information will be useful for you and your family.
You will only need essential items, such as
  • Sleepwear – Comfortable clothing that you will use at home
  • Slippers
  • Toiletries
  • Any equipment used in your care (i.e., crutches, prosthetics, C-pap machine, hearing aids, eyeglasses, etc.)
Should you need any additional personal care items, these can be purchased in or around the hospital.
  • A list of all medications, supplements or herbals, including dosages
  • All previous notes, files and folders
  • You MRI/CT or X-rays in CD and film
  • Any referral letter from your referring doctor
  • Admission slip and recent blood results if any
  • Large sums of money
  • Don’t wear expensive Jewelry and bring the bear essential
  • If you are admitted without advance preparation, ask family members or friends to take home your jewelry
  • Other valuables – electronics, laptops, iPods and iPads should be avoided while in the hospital. Though we have cameras and safety in hospital, sometimes lost items cannot be replaced and the medical team will not take responsibility for lost or stolen items. This is really for safety reasons
Normally we will let you know the time to get admitted but always worth calling the secretary or hospital admission staff to get more information. Normally admission will be one or two days before surgery and this depends on the individual circumstances based on the seriousness of your condition, distance from home, general fitness and a lot of other reasons. We will try to admit you as close as possible to your surgery and rarely on the morning of surgery sometimes.
We take all efforts to admit you at the earliest time possible. This can take anything from 15 minutes to 1 hour. Planning ahead helps in shortening the time of admission and, we need your full corporation for this.
Admission processes dependents on the multiple factors
  • Bed availability in the hospital
  • If you need additional tests to prepare you for surgery
  • If you need to see other doctors and specialists before admission
  • Anaesthetic work up and consultation before surgery
  • Waiting for results of tests etc
Sometimes it is very frustrating to wait for a long time to get into a room and bed especially when you are in a lot of pain. Everyone in the hospital and the staff fully understand your situation and do everything possible to get you to a comfortable bed soon, but sometimes we are very helpless as admission is depended on multiple factors. It is a very important process of your treatment as there are many safety checks needed to get you a comfortable room. Please bear with the staff and don’t show your frustration. If there is a serious problem you can always contact me.
