Your Stay

What to bring for your stay
To ensure you have a comfortable stay at St. Luke's Des Peres Hospital and to prevent the loss of your belongings, please follow these guidelines:
Items to bring
  • Your insurance card(s), driver's license or other photo ID, and any papers from your doctor.
  • A list of your current medications.
  • A form of payment for your co-pay/deductible.
  • A robe, slippers or socks and any preferred toiletries (hospital gowns are provided).
  • Your glasses, dentures, hearing aid, etc.
  • Any instructions your doctor may have provided.
Personal item care
To prevent the loss of your personal items, please store your contact lenses, eyeglasses, hearing aids and dentures in containers labeled with your name and place them in a drawer in your bedside table when not in use. Please don't put them on your bed, under your pillow or on the food tray - they may get damaged or lost.
Items to leave at home
  • Jewelry or other valuables. Valuables that can't be sent home with family or friends may be given to hospital security to be locked in a safe. Your nurse may contact Security for you. St. Luke's Des Peres Hospital is not responsible for any lost or misplaced items unless those items are secured by hospital security.
  • Large amounts of money or extra credit cards.
  • Medications (prescription, over-the-counter or illegal drugs). St. Luke's Des Peres Hospital's pharmacists work with your doctor to make sure you are on the best medication regimen possible. Patients are not permitted to administer their own medications or to keep personal medications unless approved by their doctor.
  • Hair dryer, electric shaver, radio or other electrical appliances. Some battery-operated devices may be allowed.
