Pre-Admitting

Pre-Admission is the first step to having an outpatient procedure. When an outpatient procedure is scheduled, patients will receive an appointment time to meet with the pre-admitting nurse. If it is necessary to cancel, please notify the hospital no less than one hour in advance and reschedule the appointment, as this appointment is essential for both safety and efficiency.

During pre-admission, a nurse will review instructions from the admitting physician and review your medical history. To help make the day your procedure hassle-free, all hospital forms and paperwork are filled out during this appointment. When pre-admitting, please bring a photo ID, a copy of insurance card(s), and any pre-arranged co-pays. Please also bring a list of all medications you are currently taking (prescription, non-prescription, vitamins, etc…)

To pre-admit, please come to the main-entrance of the hospital (behind the fountain), turn right in to the lobby area and sign-in at the admissions desk. An admissions clerk will be with you soon.

Outpatient Surgery Instructions

  • Arrive at NPMC Admitting, front entrance behind the fountain, at your specified time.
  • Do not wear any jewelry or bring any valuables to the hospital
  • Make certain you have made arrangements for someone to drive you home after your surgery. You will not be allowed to drive yourself due to the medication/anesthesia that you will receive.
  • Dress in comfortable clothing
  • You will be asked to remove any dentures or partial plates. You may bring your own denture container or we will provide you with one
  • If you wear contact lenses, please bring your container to store them. You will not be allowed to wear them during a procedure that requires anesthesia
  • If your medication list or medical history has changed since your Pre-Admitting visit, please bring your updated information with you.
  • Make a list of questions you may have and bring them with you or you may contact our nursing staff at (501) 620-2358 or (501) 620-2550.
  • On the day of the procedure, if all of the paper work is taken care of during the pre-admission appointment, you may go directly to the department to prepare for surgery. A nurse will verify your medical information once more before assigning you to a private room.
