Registration

In most cases you need to arrive approximately one-and-half to two hours prior
to your scheduled procedure time. This is required for the registration process
and to prepare you for surgery. During registration we will verify your name, date
of birth, social security number, address and insurance information. At the time
of registration, an armband with your correct identification will be placed on your
wrist that will remain with you until discharge.

Items to Bring

Before you leave your house, please remember to bring the following items, if
applicable:
  • Insurance information,
  • All home medications in the original containers if you will be staying
    overnight in the hospital,
  • An updated list of all medications you are currently taking if you are having outpatient surgery,
  • Any assistive devices you may need such as crutches, walker and,
  • Any personal hygiene items and change of clothes.
Waiting Room

Also, please remember to remove all jewelry including rings and body piercing. If you are having surgery on the hand, wrist or shoulder, extreme measures such as manually cutting off the ring may be necessary to prevent potential complications from swelling.
