What do I bring to the Hospital?

During your stay, only a few personal items are needed, such as deodorant, toothbrush, shampoo, robe and slippers. Glasses or dentures must be in appropriately labeled storage containers. No electric appliances may be brought into the hospital without prior approval from administration.

We strongly suggest you leave valuables at home. The hospital is not responsible for valuables or money kept in your room.

Advance Directive

As a patient you have a right to make healthcare decisions and to have the doctors and medical team caring for you to know and honor your decisions. An advance directive can protect this right if you ever become mentally or physically unable to choose or communicate your wishes due to an injury or illness.

  • There are several benefits to having an advance directive:
    • It protects your right to make medical choices that can affect your life
    • It may minimize the stress and responsibility on family members from having to make medical decisions for you
    • It provides guidelines to the physician(s) involved in your care
    • List of current medications

The Patient Self-Determination Act and the Healthcare Decision Law require hospitals to ask all admitted patients whether they have completed an Advance Directive. This document communicates your wishes regarding treatment in the event you are unable to speak for yourself. You may change any portion of the Power of Attorney for Healthcare by telling your physician about your new decisions or wishes.
