The items that you can and can’t bring vary depending on the level of care. As part of your orientation to the unit, staff will thoroughly check all of your belongings when you arrive. Any inappropriate items will be returned to your family or secured by Rogers Memorial staff until your discharge.
Please note that, for safety reasons, all belongings you bring with you will be put in locked storage until they can be inspected by staff. The staff will then go through these items with you. Some items will be returned to you right away; some will have to stay in storage until the staff have time to assess your safety; some items will have to stay in storage but you may check them out if needed. All electrical appliances brought in must be checked and tagged by a hospital electrician prior to use and will be kept in locked storage. Please note: no cell phones or laptops are allowed. Anything that you bring which cannot be on the unit will either be sent home with family members or kept in storage until discharge.
