Use our handy list to pack everything that you need during your stay in hospital.
Please bring your pre-admission booklet and any letters from your doctor for the hospital, as well as:
Your current medications in their pharmacy dispensed containers in a separate plastic bag, not in your luggage. Please include a clearly written list of your medication, dosage and how often taken. Include any vitamins and over-the-counter medications you take.
You will be provided with an estimate of your out-of-pocket expenses for your hospitalisation when you contact our Pre Admission Centre. Please note this will not include additional charges such as doctor’s fees.
Other costs which you may incur during your stay are payable on discharge.
Please bring provision for payment of these fees on admission to hospital. Find out how to pay your account, go to accounts and payment information
For your comfort
Electrical appliances brought into hospital must be checked by our maintenance staff. Please let the nursing staff know if you have an appliance that you wish to use during your stay.
Do not wear jewellery or bring valuables with you. St Vincent’s Hospital does not accept responsibility for valuables brought into the Hospital.
Please leave hot-water bottles and electric blankets at home – we do not permit their use because of the risk of scalding, rupture and injury. Heat packs are also not permitted because of risk of fire when heating in a microwave.
