If your physician has informed you of PRE-HOSPITAL ADMISSION benefits, it is easier for you to be admitted to the hospital, since that has helped us perform pre-operating lab exams on you in advance and with a 50% discount on them, reporting the requirements to enter the hospital, which makes strategically planning your entry possible and providing the attention that you deserve.
If you did not have this opportunity, we will briefly inform you of your admission process:
On the date scheduled for your operation, you must arrive on time at the Hospital Admission Department.
For your scheduled operation date, you must consider additional time for completing your admission process in the Outpatient Surgery Unit. Please remember to bring your pre-operation studies that were done previously.
Beginning your surgery on time will depend on you arriving with all information or documentation required so that your admission process to be as quick as possible. Not having the necessary documents can cause your surgery to be delayed or postponed.
Please remember that you must bring the following:
- The previously performed pre-operating studies.
- The admission order that your treating physician gave to you.
- Present an official identification with photo (voter ID, driver’s license or passport).
- The medical expenses card, if applicable.
When you arrive, you must complete your registration process in the Admission area.
According to Hospital Angeles Chihuahua policies, we request a deposit for hospital expenses, based on the current table, which can be done with a credit card, check, or in cash, at the Admission Department. Promissory notes are also accepted, which will be returned once you pay off your account.
Once you have finished this procedure, one of our nurses will proceed to open your file and guide you on your process and assign your room, which will be done based on availability. If due to room demand it is not possible to give you an immediate assignation, you will be informed by admission personnel and you may be temporarily sent to the hospital areas designated for such purposes.
Please do not bring valuables. Your room has a security box for items that you must bring with.
For your comfort and to make it easy for your family to find you after surgery, we would appreciate it if you stayed in the corresponding waiting room.
After your surgery, the treating physician will inform your family member(s) of the results.
Once the patient is discharged, and is back in his or her room, he or she will receive from the treating physician the post-operation indications and any necessary prescriptions.
The patient’s studies are returned and he or she is given a discharge notice, which is used to carry out the release procedure:
- Make the hospitalization payment at the Cashier Department and ask for the exit seal.
- Make the medical fees payment at the Physician Cashier and ask for the exit seal.
Patients may have the bill charged to their credit card, through the Voucher that they opened during registration, providing the name for billing (except in the case of companies with agreement).
As you leave the Hospital, you must give your exit pass to the security guard at the door.
