Other Things to Bring to the Hospital
Make sure to bring eyeglasses if you wear them. Another thing to consider if you are a reader is to take a book. It can help cut down boredom.
I keep a bag packed at all times with spare glasses, a book or two, a set of pajamas, a pen and paper, a typed list of all of my medications and doses, and a paper that includes all allergies, diagnoses, personal and family history, and emergency contact numbers. That way if I have to go by ambulance all they have to do is throw my phone in the bag and it goes with me. I even have a spare charger already in the bag.
