Serving the Community for more than a decade, Good Samaritan Hospital Medical Center’s state-of-the-art pre-surgical testing department offers patients the convenience of having all tests required before surgery completed quickly and in one location. Pre-surgical provides accommodating hours, convenient parking and a helpful staff of registered nurses, physicians assistants, laboratory personnel and technicians.
Preoperative testing appointments are scheduled when a patient is booked for surgery in the operating room or if the patient is a special procedure patient undergoing cardiac catheterizations, radiology procedures or another specialty.
Patients must bring:
- Insurance information
- Medication list
- Picture ID
- Paperwork from their physician
Patients are not requested to fast unless specifically directed to do so by their physician.
Patients Undergoing Pre-surgical Testing:
- Are assessed by a Registered Nurse
- Have their lab work, EKG, chest X-rays or other tests as required by their physician
- Are often seen by a physician assistant for a physical and history report
- Are completed in approximately two and a half hours
Patients are usually seen up to 14-days before their scheduled procedures, but most are seen within seven-days of their procedures.
A nurse from Care Management is available to address any discharge issues for special procedures, such as joint replacement.
