To complete most medical admissions forms at a hospital, a patient must enter pertinent information, including full name, birth date, mailing address, insurance data and emergency contact name. If a patient is admitted for a pre-scheduled surgery or other medical procedure, then he should also bring to the hospital some form of identification, insurance card, Medicare or Medicaid card, Social Security number, list of medications and any physician's referral forms, as noted by Johns Hopkins Medicine.
Overlake Medical Center and Shore Medical Center are institutions that provide online pre-admission forms that patients can fill out prior to going to a hospital for a procedure. Filling out these forms is a relatively easy process. However, prior to admittance into a hospital, the patient also may need to undergo pre-admit testing, as noted by Overlake Medical Center.
