Those who are staying overnight at the hospital should bring essential personal items only – nightclothes, robe, slippers, toothbrush and toiletry items. Battery-operated appliances such as electric shavers and radios are also permitted.
While you are in the hospital, please store eyeglasses, hearing aids or dentures in appropriate containers. If you need a container, please ask the staff on your patient care unit. All containers must be clearly marked with your name and room number. Do not leave personal belongings on food-service trays, in other unlabeled containers, or in hospital gowns and bed linens.
Do not bring valuables – jewelry, credit cards, keys or large sums of money – to the hospital. If you are admitted with valuable items in your possession that cannot be sent home, ask your nurse to have them stored in the hospital safe until you are discharged.
