Pre-Admission Unit

Unit Profiles in the Gerald P. Turner Department of Nursing

The Pre-Admission Unit was established in 1995 with the goal of optimizing the elective surgery experience at MSH.   In recognition of the impact surgery can have on individuals and their families, the PAU is committed to providing a holistic assessment to plan care, information needs and ensure the individual is physically, psychologically and emotionally prepared for their surgery.

The Pre-Admission Unit is staffed by Nurse Coordinators and clerical staff from 7:30 a.m. until 6 p.m., Monday to Friday.
