Pre-Surgical Assessment at BMC
Thank you for choosing Berkshire Medical Center for your upcoming surgery or procedure.
To prepare for your surgery or procedure, you will have a Pre-Surgical Assessment appointment with a nurse from Berkshire Medical Center's Pre-Surgical Assessment department. The nurse will speak with you to gather important information about your medical/surgical history; to identify any tests that you will need done before your surgery; to discuss with you what to expect before, during and after surgery; and how to prepare for your surgery.
Online Medical History
To start the pre-surgical assessment process, Berkshire Medical Center requests that you fill out your medical history online with One Medical Passport. We recommend that you enter your medical history online as soon as your surgery has been scheduled. Once you do this, our Pre-Surgical Assessment nurse will be able to access the information you entered online. This information will assist the nurse in organizing and documenting your complete medical history to prepare for your surgery.
Be sure to have the following information available before starting One Medical Passport:
- Your health insurance information.
- The names, addresses and phone numbers of your physicians.
- A list of all medications you are taking, their dosage and frequency.
- A list of surgical procedures you have ever had and their approximate dates.
