The Pre-Admission Clinic provides a pre-operative assessment for patients (adults and children) requiring surgery. The purpose of a visit to the Pre-Admission Clinic is to ensure patients are well prepared for their surgery or procedure.
Patient appointments are booked by the Central Booking department (ext. 4907) before an operation or procedure. In some cases this booking may be a day, a week or a month before the date of the operation. The pre-admission clinic visit will take from one to three hours depending on the type of preparation required. Any required blood tests, cardiograms or X-rays may be done at this time or sometimes a second appointment is necessary. As well, patients will receive education about their surgery and are encouraged to bring a family member or friend to the appointment.
At the clinic patients may experience any number of the following activities:
