    How to pack for hospital

    If you know that you are going to have to be admitted to hospital for a little while then one of the first things you need to do is pack a bag that will keep you comfortable and allow you to have everything you need with you during your stay.

    Call the hospital in advance to find out if there is anything you should bring, and anything which you are not allowed to bring, but outside of this, follow these tips for packing a hospital bag.

    • Choose a large bag. Obviously you won’t want to be bringing a giant suitcase into the hospital with you, but you do want a good sized bag so that you can fit everything you need and want into it. A medium sized hand luggage bag, or a large rucksack should be good enough.
    • Pack clothing for a few days. You may spend most of your time in a hospital gown pr pyjamas, but you will want some of your own clothing as well, and should have enough to see you through a few days. Make it comfortable clothing though, just in case.
    • Pack all of your medications. Include anything that has been prescribed to you as well as over the counter medications you might be taking. The doctor may want to see these, and you will want to have them to hand.
    • Pack entertainment. Try to pack light, so if you want to read, pack a Kindle reader. If you want to watch TV, bring your smartphone and a charger and so on.
