Pre-Admission Testing Clinic

Pre-Admission Testing Clinic

Located on the second floor of the Comprehensive Health Center, the Pre-Admission Testing Clinic is responsible for screening surgical patients before the day of their procedure to make sure they are properly prepared. Patients meet with a registered nurse to review preoperative preparation and during a telephone interview, a pre-admission testing nurse focuses on an assessment of the past medical history, as well as specific surgical expectations applicable to the upcoming procedure. The nurse will ask if there are any questions or concerns to help make the entire surgical experience the best that it can be.

Appointments and Referrals

To schedule an appointment with a pre-admission testing nurse, a surgical patient can call 602-344-1015.

One to seven days prior to the scheduled date of surgery, a pre-admission testing nurse will call the surgical patient to assess any needs the patient may have and to review the process of checking in for ambulatory or same-day admission surgery.

After 5 p.m. on weekdays, weekends or holidays, a patient can call the Operating Room at 602-344-5711 for assistance.

Patient Education

Patients will receive instructions regarding their upcoming surgery from the surgeon and clinic staff. Preadmission testing nurses are available to spend one-on-one time with each patient, either in the Preadmission Testing Clinic or via phone, to review what to expect the day of surgery and to address any questions or concerns.
