Preparing for Hospitalization

In preparing for hospitalization, please follow any directions given by your personal physician. You will only need to bring basic personal items, such as toiletries, a bathrobe, slippers and nightclothes with you. We recommend valuables such as credit cards, jewelry, cash and family heirlooms be left with a family member.
If you are being hospitalized for surgery, please arrive at Mercy Medical Center two hours prior to your scheduled surgery, but no earlier than 5:45 a.m. For your comfort, please wear casual, loose fitting clothing. Do not wear false eyelashes or jewelry.

Please leave all medications at home with the exception of inhalers.

It's important that you bring a current list of all medications you are taking. Please make sure you list the name, dose and frequency.
