What to take to stay overnight in hospital with sister?
My sister may be called at any time for a kidney transplant. I called the hospital, and their visitor overnight policy is that as long as the patient is in a private room (2 days for a kidney transplant) they can have an overnight visitor. They weren't very informative, so I don't know what kind of accommodation there is- whether a cot or recliner- I hope at least one of these. I asked if I should bring a pillow- trying to gracefully get more information, and was told to bring whatever I need to be comfortable.
So I am assuming a pillow, and a light blanket. Something comfortable to sleep in, toothbrush etc, change of clothes, kindle or book, notepad and pen. My meds and vitamins, a couple snack bars.
What else do you suggest? I don't want to bring tons of stuff, mainly I want to oversee my sister right after her surgery and take notes for her later reference about who comes in and what they say, etc. But I know I do need sleep at some point so would like to be comfortable.
