Please bring the following information with you to the Hospital on the day of your child’s admission, on the day of your child’s surgery, and for pre-admission testing. This will help the admission process go smoothly.
___ Complete list of prescription and over-the-counter medications that your child is currently taking, as well as a list of any allergies
___ Reports your child’s doctor gave you to bring to the Hospital
___ Medical insurance information, including insurance cards, pre-certification, and any other documentation required by your insurer
___ Physician names, addresses, phone and fax numbers, and e-mail addresses
___ Government-issued photo identification card for parents, such as driver’s license, passport, or other official ID
___ Custody, divorce, or other legal papers when needed, to verify who can sign for your child’s medical tests and treatments
___ Employer ID for parents or guardians
___ Emergency contact numbers
Children often feel more comfortable in the Hospital when they have their own personal things from home. Therefore, we encourage you to bring personal items to be used during your child’s stay such as:
___ Favorite pillow or blanket
___ Easily cleaned toy, doll, or stuffed animal
___ Favorite video game or music
___ Pictures of family and friends
The Komansky Center for Children’s Health provides Hospital gowns, diapers, and basic toiletries. Please bring shower shoes and slippers, as well as your child’s own toothbrush, toothpaste, comb/brush, shampoo, and other personal bathroom items. Many children prefer to wear their own clothing during their stay and, therefore, you may bring a few favorite clothing items. In addition, bring glasses, hearing aids, braces, crutches, or corrective shoes, if used by your child. We ask that you mark any items from home with your child’s name. For health reasons, children will not be permitted to share their personal things.
