Your Arrival at Mt. San Rafael HospitalYour doctor arranges admission to Mt. San Rafael Hospital. Your room assignment is determined by your doctor's orders, the type of medical care you are to receive, and the availability of rooms. Your admission to the hospital will be handled without regard to race, creed, color, or national origin.
When you arrive, certain necessary information will be requested for completion of your medical record and for financial arrangements. This is essential so all hospital departments can provide prompt service to you, and necessary information to your doctor. Be assured all of the information provided will be handled confidentially.
Your doctor will probably order laboratory or x-ray tests. Laboratory test results can help your doctor find out: (1) if you are ill; (2) what the diagnosis is; and (3) what treatment would be best. The most common procedures test samples of blood, urine or sputum, cultures, and biopsies. It is important to follow directions exactly so information from your tests will be useful to your doctor.
