Our Purpose

The Pre Admission Clinic provides a comprehensive program that will prepare you emotionally and physically for your surgery.

Our team consists of RN’s, Physiotherapists, Discharge Planners, EKG Technicians, Laboratory Technicians, Anaesthetists and Pharmacy Technicians.

Our staff will explain to you:

  1. How to prepare for your operation
  2. Begin to develop individualized care plans
  3. Arrange for community support if required after discharge
  4. Explain our Pain Management Program

Once the surgeon has confirmed your date of surgery/procedure, the Pre Admission booking clerk will make the necessary arrangements for your preassessment visit. If you do not require lab work, EKG or an anaesthetic medical consult, a telephone interview can be arranged.

Assessment Time

Your assessment time can be as follows:

  • RN Assessment only 1 – 1 ½ hours
  • RN / Anaesthetic Consult 1 – 4 hours

N.B. If you are scheduled for knee or hip surgery be prepared to stay up to 5 hours

What To Bring

On the day of your appointment, please bring the following with you:

  • The medications you are taking, in their original containers
  • A valid OHIP card
  • History of any previous surgeries
  • Any other pertinent medical history
  • A translator if your command of the English language is limited
