  • Sturdy walking shoes, if needed, for walking after surgery.
  • Personal toiletries.
  • Your own pillow if you prefer.

Please leave these items in the car and have a family member or friend bring them in when you are in a room.

Do not bring these items to the hospital:

  • Jewelry
  • Large sums of money
  • Credit cards or a checkbook (have a relative or friend bring these on the day you will be discharged, unless you have been instructed to bring a co-pay)
  • Electrical appliances
