Admissions – What to Expect
When you arrive at the hospital, you will begin the admissions process by meeting with one of our intake nurses. Here, you will be registered as an inpatient, guided through paperwork such as consent forms and Advance Directives and asked to provide the following:
- A List of Medications you take at home, including prescription medications, over the counter products, and herbal supplements. For each medication, you will need to know the medication name and dose, how often you take it, how you administer it, and the time of your last dose.
- Health Insurance Information including your current insurance identification card and any insurance forms supplied by your employer or insurance company. You will also be asked to give your insurance company permission to pay the hospital directly for your care. As a courtesy to you, the hospital will bill your insurance company directly unless you have not signed the Release of Information and Assignment of Benefits forms. In this case, you will be billed directly.
If you have any questions about registration, please call 802.747.1663 or contact your physician’s office.
