Admission Information


All persons to be admitted for either inpatient or outpatient procedures, such as lab tests or x-rays, should go to the Inpatient/Outpatient Registration Area, which is adjacent to the Emergency Room/Fast Track. During the registration/admitting process, information will be requested for your medical records and financial arrangements. All information is confidential. At the time of registration, forms will need to be signed by patients, next of kin, or a durable power of attorney. Please bring a copy of insurance cards to registration. Inpatient room assignment is determined according to medical needs.


Personal Needs
The only personal items that you will need during your hospital stay are toiletries, gown/pajamas, a bathrobe or slippers. Personal aides, such as dentures, eyeglasses, or hearing aids, may be retained in your room. However, please do not leave them where they may be discarded accidentally. Please do not wrap your dentures in tissue or place them on your meal tray. They can easily be lost. A bedside table is provided for storage of your personal articles.

Tamera Norton Honored with Daisy Award

Posted on: May 17, 2017

Tamera Norton, a registered nurse in the Transitional Care Unit, is the newest recipient of the Daisy Award at Passavant Area Hospital. Passavant partners with the Daisy Foundation to give the award each quarter to a registered nurse or licensed practical nurse who consistently demonstrates excellence through clinical expertise and extraordinary compassionate care. A grateful patient nominated Tamera for the honor: “Over the course of my 28 days at Passavant, I became concerned about my progress. I expressed my concern to Tamera. She took note and promised to try and resolve. She made many phone calls until she was able to make an appointment for me. She kept me informed every step of the way and helped arrange for me to leave the unit for the doctor’s appointment. The result of the appointment not only eased my mind, but caused a complete change in my therapy. Tamera cared for my needs unfailingly and always with professional and pleasant attitudes. The rest was way beyond the call of duty.” After receiving the award, Tamera is considering becoming a Daisy ambassador to help spread the word about her experiences. “As a nurse, our common core is to care that much about our patients. I was just trying to provide the good, quality care that our patients want,” Tamera said.
