Admission & Discharge

PRE-ADMISSION/ADMISSION PROCEDURE

Other than emergency cases, appointments for admission are made during your visit to the Consultant's Clinic.

Admission

You are encouraged to do pre-admission at least 48 hours prior to your admission, at the Admission Counter. During this process, you will be given the personal attention of the Admissions Staff on what to bring/not to bring, on your bed reservation, estimated total hospitalization cost, deposit requirements and any pertinent matter that will save time on your actual admission.

You are required to be admitted at least a day before your surgery in order that the Anesthetist may assess you. On the day of admission, please proceed to the Admissions Counter for your registration and payment of deposit. If you need any laboratory tests or investigative procedures to be done, this can sometimes be carried out before you go to the ward. After you have registered, our staff will escort you to your room.

Deposit

If the initial deposit becomes depleted before discharge, a further top-up deposit may be required.
