Worth knowing before your treatment/surgery

Before your treatment surgery

Please feel free to call us to ask when your examination and any subsequent surgery might take place. Typically, a preliminary examination will be scheduled one week to 14 business days and surgery will typically be scheduled within 14 business days from the preliminary examination.

All medical practitioners at Private Hospital Molholm are trained and authorised specialist medical practitioners in Denmark. You can find more information about each individual medical practitioner or other treatment provider under the heading "Staff".

Private Hospital Molholm does not facilitate transport to and from our hospital. Naturally, we are happy to assist with booking transport with Falck or a taxi when you, our patient, leave our hospital to return home. Several providers of healthcare insurance will pay their patients' transport to and from our hospital. 

You schedule a preliminary examination with one of our secretaries. The specialist medical practitioner who carries out the preliminary examination will also be the one who carries out any required surgery or provides any other required treatment. At the preliminary examination, you - the patient - receives information on the treatment options and the course of treatment. If required, blood samples or X-rays may be taken or an MRI scan may be carried out in connection with this preliminary examination – event if this has not been agreed beforehand. If you have previously had X-days taken or had other examinations which may be relevant for us to obtain, these will be obtained from the relevant public hospital or other private hospital. 

If surgery is required, privately-funded patients may schedule this in connection with the preliminary examination - otherwise the surgery is scheduled once the insurance provider has approved the treatment, after it has received a copy of the record of the preliminary examination. 

Prior to admission, questionnaires are handed out concerning your health for the purposes of anaesthesia, a list of medicine usually taken and declaration of consent with respect to the treatment, which we ask that you complete and return to us in good time prior to the surgery. 

As a Private Hospital Molholm patient, you must bring the medicine which you usually take, specific every-day aids used by you (hearing aid, cane, blood glucose meter, etc.), toiletries, dressing gown, clothes and slippers, something to read or music to listen to during your stay with us or during the surgery. Remember to bring your own earphones. 

Drinking alcohol and smoking will affect the result of your surgery.

Therefore, when you have to undergo surgery, it is important to prepare for the surgery. This way, you create the best possible conditions for achieving a good result.

Our hospital and our rooms are no-smoking areas; however, both patients and their relatives may smoke outside on the terrace. 

You - the patient - should attend the ward reception. Here, the nurse will greet you and help you settle in your room. You will then be prepared for surgery. In connection with some types of surgery, blood samples will be taken on admission. Before the surgery, you will be seen by both the anaesthetist and the specialist medical practitioner who is to perform the surgery. This provides you with the opportunity to ask any questions which were not discussed at the preliminary examination. 

In connection with the surgery, there are different rules for how you should take your regular medication.
The rules depend on what you are having surgery for:

Plastic surgery - Rules for your regular medication before surgery

Urinary tract surgery - Rules for your regular medication before surgery

Other surgeries - Rules for your regular medication before surgery

After your surgery, you will be seen by the specialist medical practitioner again who will inform you on the surgery. From then on, the nurse will keep the specialist medical practitioner telephonically updated on your condition. If required, the specialist medical practitioner may be called in. The day-to-day care, observation and information will be handled by the nurses. Physiotherapists are affiliated with the ward who may inform you on relevant precautions in connection with the surgery. 

The time and date of discharge is usually agreed upon already at the preliminary examination. The nurse will also provide you with painkillers or a prescription for the initial post-surgery period. 

On being discharged, you will receive a copy of your journal or have it sent to your e-Boks. 

If you wish to receive a translation of your journal, this may be arranged on payment of an additional fee. 

To ensure the best possible treatment, we will disclose information on your health relevant to your treatment with your own general practitioner, other hospitals, laboratories and any home care provider, to the extent that this is required. If an insurance provider pays for your treatment, we are obliged to provide your insurance provider with information. 

If you do not wish for information on your health to be disclosed to the above-mentioned bodies, you must specifically decline this by written notification to Private Hospital Molholm. 

All other disclosure of information on your treatment (e.g. to relatives/next of kin or the municipality) provides that you have given your specific written consent to this.
