Hospital Packing List

Hospital Packing List

We all know being a Spoonie means having a few hospital stays here and there and over the years we have curated our very own 'Hospital Packing List' which we think can help benefit anyone and everyone. Whether you're going in for a day procedure or staying in for a week, we have you sorted. If you have any recommendations of things to add to our list please leave a comment below!
