On day of admission

Please ensure you have the following with you on admission:

  • Health Fund card
  • Medicare card
  • Pension / Concession card
  • Medications in original packaging
  • Wear comfortable clothing.
  • Please wear non-slip footware.

On arrival you should go directly to the Reception counter on Level 2.

We plan to admit you as close as possible to your procedure time. However to enable staff to prepare you adequately for your procedure there may be a waiting time between your admission and procedure time.

On admission, the nursing staff will interview you to complete your admission and administer any medication if required.

You will then be shown to the admissions area where the Anaesthesist will see you prior to your procedure.

Do not... 

  • Bring valuables as Vista Day Surgery does not accept liability for any items brought into the facility.
  • Wear jewellery (wedding ring is permitted but will be taped during procedure)
  • Wear make-up.

Special Needs

Please ensure you advise the Admission Nurse when they contact you if you have any special needs such as specific dietary requirements, any Treatment Limiting Orders or Advanced Care Directives.
