Besides the essentials like wallet, there are a few items that can make a big difference to your comfort stay. But what do you really need? From slippers to pyjamas, here’s our checklist to ensure you have all the essentials.
Medicare card & Paperwork
You need the medicare card when you’re admitted to hospital and relevant paperwork to the treatment including x-rays, blood tests, scans and allergy information.
Make sure you’ve had your scripts filled before you head into hospital and make a note of the dosage/time of day you need to take each one.
Skip the lacy silks and opt for a pair of pyjamas or dressing gown that are easy to get on and off. It’s a good idea to bring along slippers that are easy to slip on and off and don’t require much bending down.
Don’t forget to pack some underwear for your hospital visit. We recommend opting for comfort over aesthetic for this particular trip away. Sometime disposable underwear would just work. Disposable underwear provides wearers with comfort, security, and confidence. They prevent leakage and simultaneously protect the skin from irritation or infection.
Grab your toothbrush, toothpaste, cleanser, moisturiser, deodorant, body wash, razor, hairbrush and anything else you use as part of your daily routine. Treat yourself to some travel-sized minis to save space. Extra tip? Store your toiletries in a waterproof bag to keep them dry. The Bosidu Fashion Women's Striped Toiletry Bag.would be a great choice as a multi-purpose durable overnight bag and toiletry bag.
Phone, headphones and chargers
Take your smartphone and a laptop to help keep you in touch with the outside world, to play your favourite music, watch movies, and pass the time during your stay. A portable Bluetooth speaker is also good if want to play background music. Don’t forget the chargers! Magazines or a book will also be good if you’re waiting around a while.
Packing some delicious snacks to treat yourself with while you’re in hospital is a great idea. Pack snacks that will stay fresh in your bag for a couple of days if needed – you never know when you might need a little something. Energy bars and protein balls are good options. Pack a refillable water bottle, so you can stay hydrated.
Sleeping mask and ear plugs
Struggle to sleep in a strange bed? A sleeping mask and a pair of ear plugs could help you get some shut-eye.
