Preparing For Surgery

Preparing for Your Surgical Journey

Your doctor has scheduled you for surgery at McLeod Regional Medical Center.

To assist you in preparation for your surgery and to help us prepare for your arrival, we ask you to follow these steps to begin your surgical journey. This information will help us make your stay as comfortable as possible.

STEP 1

Completion of Your One Medical Passport
One Medical Passport is an online health history tool to save you time and provide our staff with the necessary information needed to help us give you the best care possible. It is a convenient and secure questionnaire that allows you to enter your medical information as well as give you the ability to save, reuse and print your health history. Just create an account, answer some basic questions about your health history, and One Medical Passport does the rest. Since this is an online system, you can use it 24 hours a day from anywhere you have internet access. You will be able to update this information anytime your medical history changes.

  • Go to www.mcleodhealth.org
  • Click on the green eHealth Connection button at the top right of our home page.
  • Choose One Medical Passport.
  • If you begin completing this and need help, call 843-777-6038 between the hours of 8:00 am and 6:00 pm, Monday – Friday.

STEP 2

Complete Your On-line Pre-Registration

  • Go to www.mcleodhealth.org
  • Scroll to the bottom of the home page and click on the Pre-Registration box.

If you are unable to complete your pre-registration on-line call McLeod Reservations and Scheduling at 843-777-2095 to schedule your surgery appointment. Their office hours are Monday - Thursday, 8:00 a.m. - 7:00 p.m. and Friday, 8:00 a.m.- 5:30 p.m.

STEP 3

Pre-Admission Phone Call

  • You will receive a phone call from a McLeod nurse from our pre-admission testing (PAT) department.
  • The nurse will review and verify the information you entered online in your One Medical Passport. We review this information with you to ensure your process proceeds smoothly, safely and efficiently, and to answer any additional questions you may have.

STEP 4

  • Based on your medical history and your doctor’s orders for your surgery, you may need to come to the hospital for tests such as an X-Ray, EKG or blood work. The nurse will tell you during the pre-admission phone call if these are needed and schedule you for the tests.
  • If the nurse tells you that no tests are needed, your next step is on the day of your surgery.

STEP 5

Pre-Admission Testing Visit:

  • During this visit, you will receive important instructions and information you need to know before your surgery. Bring with you a picture ID, insurance cards, any doctor's orders, medication bottles, advance directive or living will, and a family member.
  • This visit is a good time to ask any questions you have about your surgery and recovery.
