Speare Memorial Hospital

Things to Leave at Home

Personal Electrical Devices
For safety reasons, we must ask you to leave any electrical appliances such as hair dryers and electric shavers at home (unless battery operated).  If you must bring an electrical device, it needs to be inspected and approved by our Bio-Medical Department.  Please ask your primary nurse to arrange this for you.

For safekeeping, valuables such as jewelry and money are best left at home, as Speare Memorial cannot assume responsibility for valuables kept at the bedside.  If you must bring valuables with you, you may wish to secure them in the Hospital safe. The nurse can make arrangements for the deposit and return of these items.
