Preparing For Your Hospital Stay


Whether receiving inpatient or outpatient care, planning for your hospital stay can make for a better experience. In addition to specific medical advice and instructions from your doctor, there are several other things to do before your scheduled visit:

  • Complete any pre-hospitalization tests as recommended by your doctor.
  • Read and understand insurance coverage and our insurance and billing policy and make any necessary arrangements.
  • Read and understand your patient rights.
  • Make sure you bring all prescribed medications with you to the hospital.
  • Bring your identification card.
  • Find out where you need to be on the day of surgery including directions and parking.
  • Arrange for drop off at the hospital through family members or call to arrange for free pick up on our Be Well Bus 203-573-7711.
