Comforts from home
You may wish to bring some or all of the following:
Non-skid slippers and robe
Comb and brush
Toothbrush and toothpaste
Reading and writing materials
A small amount of cash (please do not bring more than $30)
Small electrical appliances such as shavers and hair dryers are also acceptable, except in the Intensive Care Unit. This list is not all-inclusive. Different units have different rules about what they allow. If you have questions, ask your doctor's office. Someone there should be able to answer your question or direct you to someone who can.
What to do if you have questions
If you have questions about the procedure itself, how to prepare for it, or what to do afterwards, call your doctor's office. If you are being admitted, you should receive a call from your doctor's office the night before that will help you with some of these questions, including where you need to go.
