Pre-admission testing (PAT)

Before having your surgery or procedure at a CarePoint Health hospital, the operating room team and your physician must have complete medical information regarding your condition. You will need to visit a pre-admission testing (PAT) office if you are scheduled for a surgery or procedure that requires blood tests, an EKG or X-rays. The PAT visit includes a physical examination, a review of your medical history, and a nursing assessment. You will also receive information on pain management and preoperative information and instructions.

Making an appointment

If your procedure or surgery is scheduled more than three weeks in advance, the PAT office will make an appointment and notification will be mailed to you. If your procedure or surgery is scheduled within seven days, you will receive a phone call from a staff member who will assist you in making an appointment. Appointments are scheduled from Monday — Friday 7:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. Please be aware that the office staff does all it can to minimize the wait time.

What to expect during a PAT visit

You will be asked to verify relevant information, including a telephone number where you can be reached. It is very important that we have a correct phone number because we need to reach you the night before surgery. You will be informed of what time to arrive at the hospital for your surgery/procedure.

You will be escorted to the examining area where your vital signs such as temperature, pulse, respiration, blood pressure, height and weight will be taken. You will then be escorted to an examining room. The patient care technician will also draw your blood for testing and take your EKG if needed. If you have had blood tests in the past thirty days or x-rays in the past six months, it would be helpful if your doctor would give you a copy or ask to have them faxed to the PAT office.

A nurse practitioner will interview you, conduct a physical exam, and take a history including medications you are currently on and allergies you may have. Please bring a list of all the medications you are taking. The nurse practitioner will also provide you with preoperative patient information, which will help you be more knowledgeable about the procedure you are having and post-operative care. He/She will determine if you need blood work, urinalysis, an EKG or a chest x-ray. You will also be asked to sign a consent for surgery.

An anesthesiologist will take a short health history and discuss the different types of anesthesia available for your operation. You will sign the consent for anesthesia and have the opportunity to ask questions regarding anesthesia. You may also discuss the methods available to you for postoperative pain control. Please inform the doctor of any over the counter medication or herbal medication you are taking.

The day before surgery

You will be called the day before your surgery between 3:00 p.m. — 5:30 p.m. regarding the time you should arrive for surgery. Please be aware that the time you are given is generally about two hours before the time of your surgery/procedure.
