Admission Guidelines

In-Patient Admission will be processed upon the recommendation and issuance of an admission note by our empanelled consultants. In case a patient is referred to UMC Victoria Hospital by a doctor not empanelled by our hospital, the patient will first be assessed by the on-duty consultant following which admission will be processed.​

Admission Process ?

The consultant in-charge will initiate the admission process by issuance of an admission note. Once the consultant has advised admission and issued the admission note, the patient is requested to visit the Admission Desk on the Ground Floor of the Hospital Building to allow us facilitate the admission formalities. Based on the category of room opted, the estimated expenses will be shared and accordingly the deposit amount will be conveyed. 

Depending on whether the patient is a cash-paying patient or an insurance  / corporate beneficiary, the necessary payment / payment guarantee will be requested at the time of processing admission.

Once the admission has been processed, a Patient Relationship Executive will guide the patient to the room and initiate the necessary advised management.

In case of a surgery, what next ?

In case the patient has been advised a surgical procedure, post admission, the necessary pre-procedure investigations will be done. The nurse in-charge will coordinate the investigations and administer the prescribed medication. Our Anesthetist  / Doctor In-Charge will clinically examine and assess the patient for surgical fitness following which the operating theatre will be booked for the procedure. The estimated surgery charges should be deposited in advance with the billing desk to ensure accounting clearance for the patient prior to the scheduled procedure.
