Preparing for Surgery


Pre-Admission Testing

Pre-admission testing is an important part of the care you will receive if you are having surgery at Edward Hospital.

The first step to pre-admission testing is speaking to a nurse to start the screening process. The nurse will conduct a telephone interview to obtain your health history and provide you with information for your upcoming surgery. Some patients may need diagnostic tests prior to surgery, which can be arranged by the nurse.

Depending on the type of procedure you are having, your physician or anethesiologist may order additional:

  • Blood work
  • Diagnostic imaging
  • EKG
  • X-rays

Pre-Admission Telephone Screening

We will call you to schedule an appointment to review and update your health history. Please allow 15 minutes to complete the pre admission telephone screening. Please have the following information available for your pre-admission telephone screening.


  • Names and dosage of your medications
  • The names of your primary care provider and surgeon
  • Allergies
  • Chronic medical issues
  • Prior surgical procedures and anesthesia experiences
