2. A Long Phone Charger
Phones are a huge source of entertainment, which can be crucial for a patient in a hospital. A long phone charger cord might make the difference between being able to play games while the phone is charging, and having to wait for it to charge on the table. It’s a small thing, but it’s important.
Skin can dry out pretty quickly at the hospital, what with all the hand washing. A mild hand lotion can make a big difference in a patient’s comfort level. Lip balm is also good — no one likes to have chapped lips.
