Pre-Admission Testing (PAT) is your first step to a stress-free hospital experience.
This small effort will not only put you at ease about your upcoming procedure, it
will also help avoid delays on the day of your admission. During your PAT appointment,
a Nurse will perform a physical evaluation, obtain your medical history and note any
allergies. They will also answer any questions you may have and provide you with information
about your procedure. Any laboratory work and imaging reports are completed or obtained from
another physician in advance of your scheduled admission. Click to learn more

- Ask another individual to be your advocate.
- Know what medications you take and why you take them.
