  • First and last name
  • Date of birth
  • Phone number, work, home and cell
  • Special needs (language access, if the patient weighs over 400 lbs. etc.)
  • Diagnosis/reason for exam
  • Procedure, test or treatment ordered
  • Date and time preferred
  • Additional information may be requested in some cases.

The Access nurse assists the nursing staff by completing the initial nursing assessment, pre-op education, chart completion including preoperative testing results, a series of questions pertaining to the patient's health and medical history.
