Preoperative Evaluation Service

The Preoperative Evaluation Service, evaluates patients anticipated to undergo anesthesia care in the near future and prepares them for anesthesia as well as for the hospitalization process.

The evaluation includes coordination of medical information from the primary care physician and surgeon; a telephone interview and counseling about preoperative or preprocedural preparation by a member of the our trauma and nursing team; ordering of blood tests, x-rays, ECGs, or specialty consultations not already obtained; and follow-up of any such pending data to determine the suitability of the patient for the planned anesthetic. Additionally, patients who are scheduled for inpatient admission following their procedure are directed to Patient Financial Services to assure satisfactory resolution of any outstanding financial issues regarding the upcoming hospitalization in advance of the procedure.
