In an Emergency

In an emergency, patients are asked to limit what they bring with them to the hospital. The most important items to carry are your health card and list of medications. You should also bring your cellphone to stay in touch with family and friends. You may be asked to securely store large objects such as knapsacks, luggage, purses, and bags in lockers provided at the Emergency Department.
