When someone amongst the family gets admitted to a hospital, either because of some serious injury or because of some fracture etc. he or she is admitted to the emergency ward as soon as possible by some member of the family and in this situation, nobody remembers about the things that the patient will need while his stay in hospital and thus after the conditions get normal and patient is provided with primary treatment, the bag for hospital is packed up by some member of the family which is then sent to the patient for his stay in the hospital and thus here we have come with some tips for packing that bag in a better way through this article.
What to Pack in Hospital Bag
1. Some Clothes:-
First of all, I will like to advise you to place up two sets of regular clothes that are loose enough to comfort the patient. Avoid jeans or other such tight things and you may take t-shirts or shirts or even a gown. You can even pack up some food getting it recommended from the doctor if there is no provision for food in the hospital.
2. Your I.D And Health Insurance Papers:-
If the patient is under a health insurance or a health cover service, you can seek to look for the insurance policy papers and the I.D. of the patient in a way that he may be able to call the insurance service provider and get some relief on the medical costs as well.
3. Toothpaste and Tooth Brush:-
You can even manage to pick up the tooth brush and tooth paste of the patient in a way that the patient might need these if the stay is long. You can even manage to look for an extra blanket or pillow in case someone needs it.
The patient will need to remove the socks and shoes when he sleeps at night and thus you can even manage to put a pair of slippers for him in order to provide an added comfort for him while his stay at the hospital. You can even manage to put up the phone if the person forgot it at home so that the person might be able to call you in case of emergency.
5. Charger For Cell Phone And A Mosquito Repellant:-
Sometimes, there are much mosquitoes felt in hospitals despite of the spray of insecticides, some mosquitoes still remain hidden under the hospital beds and thus you can carry some mosquito repellent for the patient as well. You had carried the phone then it is but obvious that the patient may feel a need for charger to charge the phone as well. You are advised to keep a cell phone charger along with your phone in order to avoid any battery crisis.
6. Electric Kettle And Obviously Some Cash:-
The hospital department may even ask you anytime to deposit some cash with the hospital as the charges of medicine or security and thus you should keep some extra cash in your hospital bag. You can even manage to keep an electric kettle with some tea bags and some milk in case you might need to make some tea for the patient.
