What to Pack for Inpatient Rehabilitation

Find a packing list below for what to bring (and what not to bring) for an inpatient rehabilitation stay at TIRR Memorial Hermann. The patient needs:

  • Loose-fit, comfortable clothing that are easy to put on, such as sweat pants and T-shirts.
  • Depending on the therapy goals, the patient may need something with buttons, but normally pull-over shirts and elastic pants are most appropriate.
  • Shoes that don’t slip or slide; tennis shoes are encouraged. It may be requested to provide a show that is one size larger due to swelling in the feet, which is common after injury.
  • Undergarments (bras, socks, underwear)
  • Toiletries (toothbrush, hairbrush, deodorant, personal grooming products, etc.)
  • As much as possible, we encourage items from home that represent a person’s personality prior to injury. It may not be necessary to purchase many new items.

The above items allow us to appreciate the value of physical appearance to a person’s dignity. It is important to us to allow a person to change out of a hospital gown during the daytime hours– as often as medically-able. This is one step to restoring a person’s sense of wellbeing after injury.

What Should a Patient Not Bring?

  • Large sums of money, jewelry or valuables.
  • Razors
