The pre-admission clinic at BC Children’s hospital currently operates from 8:30am until 3:00pm to see complex patients prior to surgery. We do a vital signs assessment, some teaching about what to expect on the day of surgery (repeated by an RN [registered nurse] who calls families the day before) and to have an aneasthetist meet the family. Sometimes lab work and a radiology visit are also needed.
What would be your ideal experience or what do you want from a pre-admission clinic visit?
If you have used the pre-admissions clinic you may also want to comment on what has worked for you and your family in the past and what has not? What changes do you feel would be beneficial, etc.
Please leave a comment under this posting or reply to firstname.lastname@example.org by January 16 at 8am.
If your family has used the pre-admission clinic you are also invited to participate in the Rapid Process improvement workshop. We are looking for someone to participate on January 25 and during the week of January 28-31 to give the patient and family viewpoint. If you could spare even and hour or two, or could participate via Skype please contact: Susan Greig at email@example.com.
