The Hospital Stay

What should I bring with me to the hospital?
While basic toiletries (comb, toothbrush, etc.) and a gown may be provided by the hospital, some patients prefer to bring their own. Choose clothes for your stay that are easy to put on and take off. Because of your incisions, your clothes may become stained by blood or other body fluids. Following is a list of other suggested items to bring with you that you may find helpful during your stay:

  • reading and writing materials
  • word or number puzzles
  • bathrobe
  • slippers
  • personal care items
