Preventing mistaken identities

Some people share the same name. In Geneva, 17 people answer to the name of Pierre Martin. Of course, their date of birth can be used to establish ID but to reduce the risk of misidentification, the hospital has developed procedures that begin at the time of admission and are applied throughout the hospitalization period, including in the operating room.

Admission

Medical documents

Please remember to bring medical documents which may facilitate your treatment and save repeat examinations (x-rays, prescriptions, list of medicines etc.).

Reception points

Our receptionists are recognizable by their blue uniforms. They are at your service in the entrance halls of the various sites. They will guide and inform you.

Preparing for hospital

Drop in beforehand!

As soon as you know the date of your admission to hospital, we advise you to drop in to our Admissions Office a few days in advance, if your state of health permits. This gives you a chance to complete the administrative formalities and save yourself the trouble on the day of your admission to hospital.
