Registration and Admission
Information on hospital admission for pediatric patients.
If your child’s admission is planned, the doctor’s office will give you information about where to go to be admitted.
The information we request is required by law or is needed for your child’s care. All information is kept confidential, unless we are required or permitted by law to release it. If you wish to limit information that is given to others about your child’s medical condition or to limit visitors, please let us know and we will work to accommodate your request.
You will be asked to sign admission and consent forms and asked:
- Your name and current address
- Your doctor’s name
- Your insurance information and to show your card
- Any allergies your child may have to food medications or things like latex and scents
- Personal and family health history
We may ask for your child’s social security number. We may use this number to be sure we have the right medical record when two patients have the same name, and for some government or other programs. Providing your child’s social security number is voluntary, except when government programs require it.
