As closet space is limited, please bring only a few items for your personal use:
Battery-operated equipment, such as a razor, lamp or radio (with earphones) are allowed. Electric hairdryers (less than 800 Watts) or curling irons are permitted but you should not use them while in bed or alone in the room. You may bring a small amount of money for personal needs such as newspapers, television rentals, etc.
For safety reasons, butane (or other gas-powered equipment) and electrical appliances are not permitted in the hospital. Do not bring:
All personal articles should be labeled with your name.
If you have brought medication (including prescription drugs, over the counter drugs and herbal products) that you are currently taking on a regular basis, give it to the nurse or physician who admits you. A relative or friend may then return your medication to your home. If this is not possible, the medication will be kept for you until you leave the hospital. Remember to ask for your medication when you are informed of your discharge. Unless directed by your physician, pharmacist or nurse, do not take any of your own medication during your hospital stay.
