When your child arrives at the medical facility for the PE tube surgery, it’s likely you’ll need to complete some paperwork. Remember to bring personal and/or military identification and health insurance documents. You may be able to complete some of the pre-admission paperwork over the phone or online, prior to the date of the procedure. Check with the medical treatment facility to see if this is the case. If so, this can help to speed up the admission process on the day of the surgery. You may need to provide additional medical records, lab results, or X- rays. Check with your healthcare provider to see if these or any other items are needed. Parents or legal guardians must sign for the admission of those under the age of 18.
