Preparing for Your Visit

You are invited to bring a few items from home, such as those listed below, to make your visit more comfortable.

  • Robe
  • Pajamas
  • Slippers (non-slip)
  • Warm socks
  • A few pairs of underwear
  • Books or magazines
  • Calling card to make long-distance phone calls from your room
  • Toothbrush & Toothpaste
  • Comb and/or Brush
  • Shampoo
  • Razor
  • Other personal hygiene items
  • A list of your medications

Many Mountain States facilities provide the services of a hospital gift shop, where items may be purchased. Invite your family and friends to visit to purchase additional items you may need. Of course, feel free to consult your caregivers for assistance with personal hygiene items.

Mountain States Pharmacy, a new enterprise, is available at several of our hospitals in Northeast Tennessee and Southwest Virginia and has several individual locations in the Tri-Cities area. Mountain States Pharmacy includes a retail pharmacy and consumer home-care goods store, as well as services to improve patient transition. A Transition Specialist will visit your beside to help ensure that you have your first dose of medications and medical products and supplies before you’re discharged. Your prescription insurance card or information and copays may be required upon order placement.

We recommend that you leave your valuables at home. However, it will be necessary at times for you to bring hearing aids, glasses, dentures, etc. to the hospital with you. Please keep in mind it is your responsibility to keep up with such items. (Please note that ICU rooms cannot accommodate storage of personal items/luggage.)
