At CarePoint Health, we want our patients and their families to fully understand what to expect when they spend one or more nights in the hospital.  The more you know, the more comfortable and stress-free your stay will be.

What to Bring When You Come

  • Medications
  • A list of your current medications
  • Devices such as hearing aids, dentures, asthma inhalers, etc.
  • Comfortable clothing for the return home
  • Personal care items (hairbrush, toothbrush, etc.)
  • Robe and slippers
  • Socks
  • Clothes to wear when you go home from the hospital

What Not to Bring

Leave all valuables (such as jewelry) at home; it’s easy for items to get lost in the transition if you move from unit to unit.

If you choose to bring small belongings such as audio devices or a book or magazine, make sure you give them to a relative until you get settled in your room.

Give your cell phone to a family member or friend to hold until you get settled in your room. Cell phones are permitted in rooms except in the critical care units.

What to Wear

We recommend that you wear loose-fitting, comfortable clothing to the hospital.

Make transportation arrangements

Please make arrangements for an adult to bring you to the hospital and accompany you home. Depending on the type of anesthesia your procedure requires, you may need assistance for 12–24 hours after arriving home. Please note that minors must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian.
