What to bring

All you need to bring to hospital are a few personal items to make you feel more comfortable.  Please bring a dressing gown, nightwear, slippers, underwear, toiletries and an electric razor, if required.  If you use disposable razors, they must be kept in a puncture-proof case at all times to prevent sharp injuries. 

Glasses, contact lenses and dentures should be in a protective case when not being used.

If you are being admitted for inpatient transitional care, rehabilitation or pain management, or another active program, you will require comfortable day clothes and walking shoes.  Please ensure all your belongings are clearly identified.

Please also bring entitlement cards e.g. Centrelink, DVA, Medicare, Health Fund and your Enduring Power of Attorney (EPOA) and Advanced Health Directive if you have one.

What to leave at home

We recommend you do not bring large sums of money, valuables or jewellery into the hospital. The hospital does not take responsibility, nor is liable, for the loss or damage to personal property or valuables brought into the hospital.
