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
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.
