In-Patient Admissions


 

The majority of all inpatient admissions into the facility originate from the Emergency Room or from a scheduled surgical procedure. All requirements for these services can be found in their respective sections.

Direct Admissions can occur when a patient is seen in their Physician’s office and the Physician requests the patient be admitted to the hospital directly from their office. When this occurs, the patient should present to Central Registration with the following to expedite the process:

  • Written orders from their Physician
  • Insurance Card(s)
  • Driver’s license or other photo identification

Our community hospital is one of many firsts starting with the Emergency Department. Our hospital ER is known for being the first in the region to care for patients 24 hours/7 days a week.

The Registration staff will then begin the registration process which includes verifying insurance benefits, obtaining authorization from the respective insurance company for anticipated services, and requesting the appropriate type of bed from the Nursing Staff.
