Before your stay
Pre-admission health check
Before you come to KIMS for your scheduled procedure, we may invite you for a pre-admission health check. We want to ensure you are safely looked after during your stay with us.
An experienced member of our nursing team will ask you about your medical history and any current health problems, as well as information about which medication you are currently taking, and any allergies you may have.
You will be given information about any special preparations you need to make or instructions you need to follow before your procedure, as well as how long you are likely to be in hospital.
If there is anything you don’t understand, please ask – there will be plenty of time to answer any questions you may have. Simply call 01622 914 718.
What you need to do before you come in
Please check the following:
- I have received my Admissions Pack in the post
- I have completed and returned the Patient Pre-Admission Assessment Form included in the Admissions Pack
- I have arranged for a responsible adult to accompany me home and to stay with me for 24 hours following my operation.
- You must contact 01622 914 718 at least 48 hours before your admission if you are unable to arrange this level of care and support.
- Regrettably, your operation may need to be postponed if you have not been able to make suitable arrangements for your safe return home.
- I have a supply of pain relief tablets at home (if advised by my doctor that it’s safe for me to use them)
- I have continued to take my regular medicines on the day of admission and at my usual time (unless NOT advised to do so by my doctor).
