Pre-Admission Screening Service
Express Pass privileges are available
through the Pre-Admission Screening Service
(PASS) to all preoperative and pre-procedure patients
prior to their admission date. Experienced nurses are certified in Advanced
Cardiac Life Support (ACLS) and trained to care for patients with multiple
needs. The PASS nurses work to ensure all patients pre-admission procedures,
tests, histories and forms are completed allowing for expedited admission and
minimal delays the day of their scheduled procedure.
Additionally, the nurses provide procedure specific
education to both the patient and their family, better preparing the patient and
their support system for care post discharge. Staff members are uniquely trained
to provide the support services needed for any perioperative experience. The
day-surgery staff attends to all pre-operative patients and post-operative
recovery and discharge for outpatients.
