What to Bring/What NOT to Bring

Be prepared for your stay.

Being properly prepared for a stay at West Suburban Medical Center longer than an appointment is key to having a positive experience. Here is a quick patient checklist for what to bring for your stay:

  • Personal toiletries, bathrobe, slippers or socks.
  • Any medications you usually take. Be sure to write your name on the containers and inform your nurse.
  • Your glasses, dentures, hearing aid, etc.
  • Any instructions your doctor may have provided.
  • Cash to purchase a debit phone card for long distance calls (local calls are free).

What should be left at home?

  • Jewelry (including wedding ring) or other valuables. West Suburban Medical Center can not be responsible for personal items.
  • Large amounts of money or extra credit cards (but you may want a few dollars with for a magazine or snack).
  • Hair dryer, electric shaver, cell phone, radio or other electrical appliances.
