Before an outpatient gets services at Iranian Hospital, patients should first stop at one of our registration sites. These registration sites are located on the ground floor of the Old Building main door from Al-Wasl Road, and Clinics Entrance in the New Building. Patient registration staff will enter your demographic and insurance information in our data base and provide you with a unique IHD patient record number(MRN) that can be used each time you visit the Hospital.
You must present a valid photo ID (like Emirates ID Card) or your passport for registration.
What To Bring if You are Admitted
You will only need to bring a few personal things for your hospital stay like reading materials, your dentures, eye glasses, contact lenses or hearing aids. Etc (if any). When not in use please keep these items in a safe place such as the bedside drawer.
You should bring a list of all the medications you are currently taking. DO NOT BRING ANY MEDICATIONS WITH YOU TO THE HOSPITAL UNLESS YOUR DOCTOR TELLS YOU TO DO SO. Patient’s gowns will be provided by the hospital.
What NOT to Bring
Please do not bring any valuables, jewelry, credit cards or large amount of money with you to the hospital. If you do have a family member or friend, let take them home for you. If this is not possible, a small safe is located in each room for valuables.
A battery powered radio, CD, or cassette player with headphones is OK, but you must assume responsibility for it and listen to headphones only.
