When you are admitted to the hospital, you or your family will be asked a number of questions. We will confirm your name and address, health card number, supplemental health insurance coverage, allergies and special dietary needs. You will be given a hospital identification bracelet that includes this important information. This band will be checked often during your stay.
What to bring
Your Health card (OHIP card) and proof of additional insurance coverage, if required.
Personal Items: You are encouraged to bring your own sleepwear, underwear, bathrobe and slippers, eyeglasses, contact lenses, hearing aids, and personal care items such as shampoo, soap, toothbrush and toothpaste.
Medications: Bring all your medications (in their original bottles) and/or a complete list of your medications. This includes a record of your prescription drugs, over-the-counter medications such as vitamins, supplements, herbal remedies and any other non-prescription medications as well as a list of the dosages and the frequency of each medication you are taking.
