Checklist for your hospital stay:

  • your medical insurance cards

  • your walker, if you already have one at home

  • personal toiletries

  • eyeglasses, not contact lenses

  • this manual

  • your list of current medications with dosages

  • non-slip, flat, supportive athletic or walking shoes. Shoes with laces or Velcro are beneficial as they allow for increased foot girth due to foot swelling.

  • Clothing: a pair of non-restrictive pajamas or a short nightgown and a short, lightweight robe (shorter clothing helps prevent falls). You may also wish to bring a lightweight, loose fitting pair of slacks/shorts or sweats. This is not required, but patients often report they feel more comfortable wearing their own clothing, instead of hospital gowns.

  • A book, magazine or hobby item to occupy your time.

    Please DO NOT bring:

  • MEDICATIONS

  • VALUABLES

  • JEWELRY
