Prepare for Hospital

What to bring to hospital

You will need your toiletries, nightclothes and some loose fitting, comfortable day clothes. You will feel more comfortable if you get dressed in “day” clothes when you are in hospital. T-shirts and shorts are practical when doing exercises, etc.

Also bring your usual medicines and a small amount of money, but leave valuables, jewellery, etc. at home. You may want to bring a few books or magazines. You may also want to bring packs of antiseptic hand wipes which you can use every time you go to the loo, and also before and after meals.

If you do bring in your own medication, you must tell your doctor and the nurses what you are taking. You should also tell them about any supplements or medication you are taking.
