Referral Process

When telephoning a direct admission, provide

  • patient's name
  • patient's birth date
  • diagnosis
  • attending physician
  • referring physician
  • Does patient require isolation?
  • Has the patient been exposed to any contagious diseases such as chicken pox?
  • Any special instructions? (eg, Does patient need to be admitted to a special care unit?)
  • Type of insurance/authorization number when required

Please telephone the admitting department before sending the patient to the hospital for admission. Notification of admission allows us to prepare for your patient. Admitting will transfer your call to the admitting resident after receiving complete information. It is important that you speak to the appropriate resident.

Direct admissions must be instructed to report to Dayton Children's emergency department triage area for a quick assessment before actual admission.
