Having Elective Surgery at Hartford Hospital?

Pre-Admission Testing Center

In preparation for your surgical procedure at Hartford Hospital and in compliance with the Joint Commission, you will be required to complete a Preoperative History and Physical examination within 30 days of your scheduled surgical date. This may be completed by either your primary care provider or a provider at the Pre-Admission Testing Center (PATC).

In preparation for your surgery:

  • A Registered Nurse will contact you via telephone within 30 days of your surgical procedure to review your current medications including over-the counter supplements, medical and surgical history as well as general questions regarding your mobility, cultural values, beliefs and practices that may impact your hospitalization.
  • A Registered Nurse will contact you via telephone one business day prior to your scheduled surgical date to inform you of your arrival time to the hospital, review final instructions and answer any questions that you may have.

During your appointment, you will:

  • Meet with a Registered Nurse and/or Provider
  • Receive instructions regarding your pre-surgery medications
  • Complete any necessary preoperative testing
  • Possibly be referred to visit a specialist prior to your surgical procedure (for example a cardiologist or pulmonologist)
