Patient Information

Here are some simple things you can do to take an active part in your health care.

Things to bring with you

  • Phone number of your emergency contact 
  • ​Insurance cards and forms 
  • Two forms of Identification 

  • Applicable deductible payments

  • Any information from your physician 

  • List of current medications 

  • Immunization information 

  • Advance directives (living will, healthcare power of attorney, advance instruction for mental health treatment) 

  • Personal items (toiletries, robe, slippers, pajamas - before bringing food from home/outside please contact the nursing staff) 

  • Information for discharge arrangements (who will pick you up from the hospital, where you will go after you leave the hospital) 

  • Reading material 

Valuables and Personal Items

If you brought valuables such as jewelry or cash to the hospital, please send them home with a family member or friend. If you must keep valuables with you, ask your nurse to lock them in the hospital safe. You will be given a receipt for them. The hospital is not responsible for valuables and cash kept in your room. Speak to your nurse when you are ready to have your valuables removed from the hospital safe.

Advance Directives

Many patients have completed legal documents called Advance Directives to prepare for a time that they may not be able to make health care decisions for themselves. If you have Advance Directives, please bring them with you when you come to the hospital. If you have not taken this important step to protect your wishes concerning your medical treatment, we offer information and a toolkit here to assist you with completing you advance care planning.
