Patient and Visitor Information
Advance directives are documents you create to describe the extent of medical treatment you want to receive—or not to receive—should you become unconscious or too ill to communicate. Though the topic may be difficult to discuss, your wishes are important. We recommend that you discuss advance directives with your spouse, other family members, physicians, nurses, and clerics while you are feeling well and thinking clearly.
Bioethics is the discipline that addresses ethical issues that arise in the health care setting, including those related to life and death, cure and comfort, truth telling and trust reflected in patient care and decision making.
Improving patient care by focusing on key quality and safety indicators is integral to achieving Hackensack Meridian’s overall quality and safety objectives. It is an interdisciplinary, multi-party effort, one that encompasses the entire organization – including physicians, nurses, support staff, administration personnel and board members – all working in partnership to improve the quality and safety of patient care.
Many patients are required to obtain pre-admission testing prior to their scheduled procedure(s).
At Jersey Shore University Medical Center, there are two locations where pre-admission testing occurs:
HOPE Tower (located directly next to the main Jersey Shore University Medical Center building)
19 Davis Avenue
Neptune, NJ 07753
Amdur Pavilion at Jersey Shore University Medical Center
Neptune Township, NJ 07753
The location where your testing will occur is dependent upon the procedure.
Where to Go for Pre-Admission Testing
Your care team will inform you if scheduled testing is required or if walk-in testing is an option. If your care team does not contact you regarding scheduling your testing, please obtain your testing at HOPE Tower.
