Here at Dorminy Medical Center, we understand that coming to the hospital as a patient or as a loved one's support person can be a difficult, and often an overwhelming experience. Whether you’re preparing for a hospital stay or stopping by to see friends and family, knowing where to go and what to bring will help make your visit less stressful. To make your experience easier, we want to provide you with helpful information you may need to plan your visit, such as what to expect.
When you are admitted to our unit, we ask lots of questions regarding your health history and present illness, which is necessary to complete an accurate, up‐to-date file. You will also be asked to sign several forms, and you will be given information about Advance Directives during your admission process. Our care is centered on you.
Upon arrival to Dorminy Medical Center, please sign-in at registration and they will contact your nurse to assure your room is ready. To complete your registration, please bring the following items with you: health insurance card(s), photo identification (driver’s license, etc.), physician’s order and list of current medications. After completion of the registration process, a member of our staff will escort you to your room. Patient care rooms include private medical care rooms.
