  • Picture identification, such as a driver's license, state ID card or passport.
  • Your insurance card.
  • Personal items to make your hospital room feel more like home, such as one or two small framed pictures, a pillow or throw, your slippers and robe. You are welcome to bring electric razors, toiletries and radios with you.

Please do not bring valuables such as jewelry, credit cards and cash. If you do, they will be stored in a safe for safekeeping. Do not bring pocket knives or weapons.

Open communication

We encourage you to be involved in your care. Feel free to ask any member of your care team questions such as:

  • What is your name?
  • What role do you play on my care team?
  • What is the medication you are giving me and what is it for?
  • What can I expect during this procedure?
  • What will this procedure tell you and why is that important?
  • What is my diagnosis?
  • What plan of care do you recommend for me?
