Before you are admitted to the hospital, an admissions nurse will call you to obtain preliminary information, provide important information regarding your hospital stay and answer your questions. Your physician also may schedule routine medical tests, such as laboratory tests or x-rays, before your hospitalization. Other routine tests may be done on the day of your admission. When admitted to the hospital, your care will be provided by a team of health care professionals trained to meet your specific medical needs.
