Packing List for the Hospital

Patients don't need to pack many special items for the hospital. Paperwork, money, medications, clothing and some entertainment are most of what is necessary. Leave extras, such as jewelry, nice clothes and makeup, at home.

Packing List:

  • Prescription medications and instructions for taking them
  • Loose-fitting clothes
  • Non-slip slippers
  • Personal items: toothbrush, toothpaste, hair comb, lotion and chapstick, shampoo, soap
  • Personal entertainment: magazines, books, a Kindle, crossword or Sudoku puzzles, iPod
  • Cell phone with charger
