We’ve compiled the following lists of recommended items for patients to bring to treatment at Mesilla Valley Hospital. Please also review our list of prohibited items and be sure to leave those belongings at home.
We recommend our acute, short-term patients bring the following items to help ensure a comfortable stay. Keep in mind, we do not provide clothes or scrubs to patients.
Patients should bring casual, inexpensive clothing, as Mesilla Valley Hospital cannot assume responsibility for personal items. Patients are responsible for the care and cleaning of their own clothing. Clothing must be washed regularly in the on-site laundry facilities.
To protect our patients and staff from injury, we have compiled the following list of items which should not be brought to the hospital. Any items considered inappropriate will be sent home with family members or held for safekeeping by nursing staff until the patient is discharged.
Patients may not use items in safekeeping during their stay. All cosmetics must be in plastic containers.
We do not allow:
Any items that may endanger patients or staff are also prohibited.
This list is subject to change. The treatment team reserves the right to evaluate and restrict any additional items. All forbidden items will be stored in a secure box and returned to your parent/guardian as soon as possible during visitation and/or by mail.
