Surgical Services

Surgical Services at Bartlett Regional Hospital includes the operating room, central processing, the Post-Anesthesia Care Unit, anesthesia services, pre-admission testing (PAT), and the Same Day Surgery.

While the majority of patients are discharged on the same day, some require an overnight stay.

The PAT (pre-op) process:

  • The surgeons office will send a request for procedure to the OR scheduler who will in turn, schedule the case.
  • PAT is notified and will schedule most patients as a phone interview and those who are not, will have a walk-in appointment.
  • The PAT nurse will ask a series of health history questions, provide instructions for date of service, and discuss any questions and concerns you may have.
  • Your preoperative evaluation may include surgeon ordered labs, imaging, and EKG. You and your PAT nurse will discuss this.
  • Your visit to Bartlett starts at the registration (PAS) office on the main floor. The patient access representative will verify insurance and ID and put a wristband on you. You will check in with PAS for your PAT and the day of procedure.
