Admission Policy & Process

Admission Policy
Cullman Regional Medical Center provides inpatient and outpatient care and services on a nondiscriminatory basis. All patients being admitted will receive medical services without regard to race, color, sex or national origin.

Your physician must be a member of our Medical Center staff in order to request your admission. For your convenience, the admission procedure may be conducted by a CRMC registered nurse or hospital registration personnel in the privacy and comfort of your hospital room.

Please keep the following in mind:
  • We are unable to make room reservations because our emergency admissions and inpatient discharges determine room availability.
  • Patients who have insurance plans requiring pre-admission certification must, with the assistance of their physician, obtain pre-certification prior to any scheduled or non-emergency admission to the hospital. 
  • At CRMC, we have both private and semi-private patient rooms. Based on space availability, there are several factors considered in the selection of a room for a new admission. Some of those factors are sex, age and medical diagnosis. Selection is based on the patient’s medical needs and space availability. All beds are equipped with a remote control unit which operates the nurse call system and the television.

Admission Process
A member of the CRMC medical staff, who will supervise every detail of the patient’s treatment, will request patient admission. Upon arrival, each patient will be asked a number of questions including identifying home medications. It is important that you bring a medications list with you.

This information is extremely important and will be kept in strict confidence. We appreciate your cooperation in providing detailed answers to these questions.
