It is not just expectant mothers that should have a hospital bag packed !
It’s always useful to have a hospital bag packed for an elderly person in case of a fall or being taken ill suddenly. It is also handy to store it in an easily reached place.
What to pack for a hospital stay ?
Here are some suggestions
- Dressing gown
- Fresh undies
- Wash bag
- Any pads needed
- Wet ones
- A list of medication
- A list of contact numbers
- Enough money for the shop and television/phone
- Mobile phone
- Laptop/ Kindle
- A set of clothes for leaving hospital
I have also discovered a compact dry mouth spray available from Boots chemist
