Dear patient, we would like to thank you for the trust you are endowing with Akromion Hospital’s medical team and for letting us take care of your health.
We are aware that every decision about hospitalization and surgery, no matter how necessary it might be, brings a certain amount of discomfort to patients.
Our goal, besides just the treatment of the illness, is to make your stay at Akromion Special Hospital as comfortable as possible and to help you to calmly go through the therapy process.
Upon your arrival to Akromion, a nurse will welcome you at the registration desk. She will register you as a patient and refer you to the doctor’s office or walk you to the ward.
If you have been scheduled for a small surgery, you will be referred to the dressing room where you will change into hospital clothes, after which a member of the operating team, medical staff, will prepare you for the procedure. They will prepare you for infusion, ask you questions about the last time you had something to eat and drink, about any possible allergies you might have, your general health, medicines you might be taking and a few other administrative questions. We will shortly repeat all the information related to the type of surgery you are about to undergo and about anaesthesiology procedures that will enable you to have as little pain and discomfort connected to the surgery as possible, at a level you will find acceptable. If you have not already done this, we will ask you to sign the consent form for the surgery and the relating anaesthesiology procedures.
If you have been taken to the hospital ward, a member of the medical staff will visit you in your room and go through the above stated questions.
In order for us to provide you with the optimal peri-operational care, we kindly ask you to follow the instructions given by our doctors related to the preparations for your surgical procedure. There are several general rules we ask you to follow when arriving to the hospital: General instructions for patients.
