What To Bring
Since you and your family are at the center of the healing process, we welcome and encourage you to bring personal items which will make your Hospital stay as comfortable as possible. Hospital gowns are provided, but you may wish to bring your own:
What NOT to Bring
Since most small electrical appliances do not meet the strict electrical safety regulations of the hospital, and we ask that you please leave them at home. Items such as:
You may want to keep a small amount of money with you to purchase newspapers or television service. However, expensive items like jewelry or large sums of money should be left at home. If that’s not possible, you may ask your nurse to have your valuables stored in the Hospital’s safe. Ask your nurse to make arrangements to retrieve items stored in the safe weekdays between 8:00 am and 4:30 pm. If you are going to be discharged on the weekend, someone from Safety and Security will retrieve your valuables. If you are bringing dentures, eyeglasses, or a hearing aid with you, please be sure to tell the admitting nurse that you have these items. It is the goal of the hospital to insure all patient property remains safeguarded during your stay.
