At Baylor Scott & White Heart and Vascular Hospital, we strive to make your hospital
stay go as smoothly as possible. To assist you in preparing for your stay, we have
developed a Pre-Admission Pink Packet. This is called the Pink Packet as we have
placed forms and information needed for your stay in a large pink envelope. You
should have received your Pink Packet at your physician's office.
Most patients will receive a Pink Packet from their referring physician prior to the date of the scheduled procedure. We ask that you bring the completed Pink Packet forms with you when you arrive at Baylor Scott & White Heart and Vascular Hospital on the day of your procedure. By completing the Pink Packet forms prior to your visit, the admissions process moves quickly and efficiently. This will also allow our staff time to review your information and provide reduced wait times during the registration process on the day of your admission.
In the Pink Packet, you will find:
Admission Database Information. This form includes information about previous surgeries, your medical history, a pain assessment, and questions about health management. The medication section is very important and should include a listing of the medications that you take regularly, along with the dose and frequency of each medication. It is important for you to tell us all of the over-the-counter medications you are taking, including herbal preparations, homeopathics, vitamins, and supplements. If you were asked to stop taking a medication for a few days prior to arriving, please let us know. In addition, please identify all allergies that you may have. It is vital that you complete this section, listing any medications to which you are allergic. You should also include latex and shellfish allergies, if applicable.
Pre-Admission Information for Patients. This is a handy brochure to help you prepare for your hospital visit. This brochure includes a listing of the things that you need to do to prepare for your admission, what you need to bring, what to do on the day of the procedure, and any special instructions.
Primary Care Physician Information. This form will give us the necessary contact information for your primary care physician. Our teams at the Baylor Scott & White Heart and Vascular Hospital work closely with your primary care physician, and this will help us be in contact with him or her.
When filling out the Pink Packet, please use black ink and write legibly. Bring the
Pink Packet with you on the day of admission.
Please be sure to bring your current driver's license and insurance card with you for identification purposes.
You should bring all of your prescription medications, herbal preparations, supplements, and vitamins with you to the hospital in their original containers. It is important for us to know how you have been taking them and the instructions that were provided with your prescription medications. Your medications will be safely stored until you are discharged, or they will be sent home with a family member. You will not need these medications in the hospital. All of your medications will come from our hospital pharmacy.
