What to Leave at Home
We encourage you to leave any valuables such as money, jewelry, documents, as well as medicines, at home. If you were admitted from the Emergency Room, please make arrangements with a family member or friend to take your valuables home for you. The hospital is not responsible for the loss or damage of items. If you are unable to make arrangements for your valuables, please inform a member of the care team so we can deposit your items in the safe.
Patients who are disoriented or unconscious may have a representative inventory the patient belongings or valuables with the admission staff.
