What to Bring


Packing for Inpatient Treatment

Rolling Hills Hospital has a responsibility to provide a secure, comfortable environment for patients, visitors and staff. To create this environment, we’ve outlined a recommended packing list to promote a more comfortable stay. We’ve also listed out which items are not acceptable and should be left at home. As you review the lists below, feel free to reach out to Rolling Hills Hospital for assistance. If there are items you are unsure of, a staff member will let you know whether or not it is an acceptable item.


Please note that items cannot contain strings or rope-like materials. Washer/dryer units are available for patients, so please keep items limited to the quantities outlined.
