Pre-Surgery Planning

Your Pre-anesthesia Evaluation

If you are scheduled to have a surgical or endoscopic procedure (excludes c-section) at Baton Rouge General, you are required to meet with a member of our preanesthesia nursing staff to discuss your medical history. During the interview, we will determine what lab work or tests may be needed prior to having anesthesia. Evaluations can be done no later than 21 days prior to your surgery date.

Before your evaluation, you must download and complete the Preadmission Evaluation Form which documents your personal and medical history, allergies, current medications you are taking and emergency contact information. Please bring your completed form, along with a photo ID, insurance cards, doctor or surgeon paperwork and your living will (if applicable) to the Bluebonnet Admissions & Registration office.

To schedule your evaluation please call (225) 763-4068 or make an online request below.
