What to Pack for Your Medical Travel
When you are planning a trip, especially for reason associated with medical travel services, a well-packed bag is essential for having a more comfortable journey. Your own personal belongings can help you feel a little closer to home, the following represents a list of suggested items to consider:
- Loose-fitting, comfortable pyjamas or gown, lounge outfits and robe.
- Light, loose fitting clothing such as T-shirts, yoga pants, sweat pants, lounge pants, or shorts.
- A light sweater or jacket, loose fitting underwear, socks, slippers and a pair of flip flops.
- Your own pillow and an extra pillowcase (this is a great comfort item to take, you can treat it as a carry on for your flight home too)
- Providing the hospital with a list of important contact phone numbers, including area code, will ensure that family and close friends will be notified in the event of an emergency.
- Communication tools such as your laptop, cell phone and chargers to stay in touch with family.
- A prepaid phone card or sim card are suggested when taking your cell phone.
- Entertainment items such as books, magazines, print puzzles or a journal to record your thoughts.
- Eyeglasses. If you wear contacts, you may be more comfortable wearing glasses during your hospitalization. Contact lenses may become dry if you are dehydrated or resting.
- Lip balm, hairbrush, comb, shampoo, and soap if you have personal favourites.
- Mouthwash, toothbrush and toothpaste, deodorant, toiletries, feminine products.
- Compression stockings (if recommended) beneficial for the flight home.
- An incision care kit which may include: dressings, gauze or sterile pads for cleaning incision sites, wound cleaning solution or antiseptic wipes. Neosporin and Q-Tips for application.
- If you are affected by bright light when wanting to rest, bring a cover for your eyes to help you remain undisturbed; also bring a pair of earplugs which work well if you are sensitive to noise.
- Remember, it's best to leave valuable items at home.
