A friend passed on some good advice today about having a small bag packed with essentials just in case one does end up in hospital. It is always a good thing to be prepared in the hope that one won't need it. If one does though, you are prepared. Useful things are;
Pyjamas, t-shirt, toiletries, a book (and your specs), hearing aid batteries (if you need them), any medication you are on, tissues, underwear and perhaps a dressing gown.
You might think of other things like your address book, pen and paper ...
