Before & After Your Operation

Before Your Operation

  • Pre-Registration and Pre-Certification

    If you are unable to visit the PARC, an admissions team member will attempt to contact you by phone regarding your admission and verify insurance coverage. If you do not have insurance or if you have workman's compensation coverage a team member is available to assist you. Call (225) 765-1300 for more information.
  • Pre-Admissions and Registration Center

    The Our Lady of the Lake Pre-Admissions and Registration Center (PARC) team educates patients and families on what to expect, arranging pre-surgical testing and counseling with an anesthetist. During your visit to the PARC we will work together to:

    • Complete any lab work and diagnostic testing
    • Update your current medical history
    • Educate you about your procedure
    • Discuss your discharge needs with the nurse
    • Give you an opportunity to ask questions and discuss any concerns
    • Complete the pre-admission process
    • Meet with an anesthesia representative to discuss anesthesia related to your specific surgical procedure

    Bring all medications you are currently taking in their original bottles or an updated list to this appointment.

  • What to Expect

    For general surgeries, guests check in to St. Mary's Admissions desk on the second floor, and when it is time for surgery, the family is escorted to a private area to wait comfortably both before surgery and during recovery. These rooms are staffed with volunteers who give regular updates, and include a sitting area where family members can remain with the patient post-surgery.
