If You Are Scheduled For Inpatient Admission

If you have spoken to CES and a decision to be admitted to Four Winds Saratoga’s Inpatient Service has been made, then you may wish to complete and print the following forms at home, prior to your intake appointment.

Medical Emergency Consent

Medication Questionnaire

These forms are only two pieces of our admission packet, and they should only be completed if you have been given a date and time for admission.

Completing and printing these forms at home prior to coming to Four Winds is helpful, but not necessary for admission. If you forget the forms, or choose not to complete them at home, then you can do so at Four Winds during the admission process.
