To help your child feel more at ease in the hospital, you are welcome to bring personal
items such as pajamas, slippers, comfortable clothing, blanket, toy, stuffed animal, photos of family and friends and school assignments.
Be sure each personal item is clearly labeled with your child’s name.
Cell phones, personal computers and other electronic devices are considered valuables
and are the responsibility of the owner.
Avoid placing personal items on a meal tray, under a pillow, on the sheets, in a robe pocket or in any concealed place where they may be lost or accidentally thrown out.
Plug-in radios, fans, heating pads, extension cords and essential oil burners can be
hazardous and are not permitted in the hospital.
Please ask your Health Unit Coordinator (HUC) for a DVD player or your Child Life Specialist for a list of gaming systems that are available for use in your child’s room.
Lost items: While we certainly try to return lost items to their owners, UW Health is not responsible for your or your visitors’ personal belongings. To file a lost items report, please talk to your nurse.
