  • hair brush or comb
  • shaving kit
  • toothbrush and paste
  • shampoo and soap
  • sanitary napkins
  • Kleenex

Electric razors and blow dryers are the only electrical items you are permitted to bring. Please show your nurse any electrical items you bring with you.


You may wish to bring a small amount of cash, such as $10 or less, for any small items you might need. However, please leave your valuables at home. The Hospital assumes no responsibility for loss or damage to your personal property. Any valuables you must bring with you should be sent home with a relative or friend. If this is not possible, ask the admitting clerk about safe storage.
