Trinity Health is committed to preserving and improving the quality of health to the people we serve. Our mission is to excel at meeting the needs of the whole person through the provision of quality healthcare and health related services.
Trinity Hospitals' preadmission program is designed to streamline
your hospital admission and help ensure a smooth and worry-free
hospital stay. Pre-surgical preparation may include blood tests,
x-rays, medical history, physical exam and patient education. These
should be completed within a window of no more than two weeks and no
less than 48 hours in advance of your surgery to avoid cancellation
or delays in your surgery date.
Please bring all of your insurance information with you,
including names of companies and policy numbers.
Consider completing an Advance Directive document (see the
section on Making Healthcare Decisions). If you already
have one, please bring a photocopy with you.
Bring any prescription and non-prescription medications
that you are taking in their correctly labeled containers.
This includes vitamins, over the counter medications and
herbal supplements. These products may interact with
anesthesia or affect how well your blood clots. Your health
care team can make adjustments if they know what you are
Upon admission you will be assigned a personal
identification number or PIN, which you may share with
whomever you choose. To protect your privacy, no
information about your condition will be released over the
telephone - even to family members - unless the caller
provides the correct PIN number.
If you have questions that are not answered with the
information we have provided you in this section, call our
pre-admission nurse at 701-857-5722 between the hours of
9:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m.
