Packing: Preparing a Hospital Kit

Reading Time: < 1 minute

In this post we share the items to keep in a pre-packed bag that someone can grab on your behalf in the event of hospitalization.


In another post we explored preparing a medical plan & document kit ahead of one’s travels. A natural extension of this is to prepare a kit of clothing, documents and other creature-comfort items in case of a hospitalization. Corral the items listed below in a single bag that can be easily located by a support person. This allow you to focus on your treatment and recovery instead of trying to instruct someone about where to find item x,y,z.
